We re-created a wind tunnel we saw during a staff trip to Boulder Journey School. To provoke children's thinking and problem solving, we provide materials which float easily as well as materials that don't. The children enjoy watching the materials float to the top and out, some hover (such as cut sponge pieces) and some don't float at all (styrofoam balls). One of the children was able to make the balls float by wrapping them in a plastic grocery bag. Critical thinking at it's finest!

Child Dev. Dayhomes: We set up a provocation using recycled egg cartons, pom-poms, child-size tongs and wooden clothes pins to see how the children would engage with the materials. The children used the tongs and clothes pins to pick up the pom-poms, organizing them by colour, making patterns, labelling colours and developing their fine motor and hand-eye coordination skills! We displayed open-ended questions around the activity for the educators to engage in conversation.

We created paint brushes for the children using found twigs and leftover flowers and greenery from a bouquet. We tied them to the branches using small elastic bands. Messy Play, Paint Brushes, Child Development, Branches, Greenery, Workshop, Bands, Bouquet, Create
