Facebook. Sensory Bottles | Experimenting with Viscosity. 5 Different Activities for 6 Lines of Tape. Gross MotorToddlersPreschoolersTape50 Comments We recently did our tape jumping game again. It is such a blast! The kids get so many giggles out of it. This time, we expanded on it a little though and had some more fun with the same lines of tape? First, I used painter’s tape and made six lines of tape about a foot apart from each other. Or try these 2 activities with ‘different lines’ of tape, which is one of the challenges during the 7 day challenge. Save And then we had so much fun! A note before starting: I highly recommend the use of painter’s tape in many, many activities.
Join us for a 7 Day Challenge to do with your child! 1. The original way we did it, jumping from the first line and seeing how far they could jump. We also jumped from line to line, or skipping a line. 2. Same as number 1, just doing it backwards. Save 3. George has been practicing this at school a lot, so it was fun to bring it into this activity. He asked me to hold his hand while jumping with one foot to help him. Save 4. Scented invisible ink. Today’s message is being brought to you by Courtney… Have you ever made a fun discovery and just can’t wait to share it with someone? Well, that is exactly what happened when I figured out a new way to make invisible ink… We’ve been exploring mysteries at preschool this week!
Find out more about how we solved our missing snack mystery by clicking here. The children learned about our missing snack by revealing a message written in invisible ink. I really wanted this process to be as simple as possible, in case our students wanted to try it, as well. Making invisible ink is a two step process. First you need to make the ink and create your invisible message. To make your invisible ink, you mix equal parts baking soda and water. To make your magic revealing potion empty the packets of drink mix into cups and mix with a small amount (probably about 1/4 – 1/3 cup) of water. Our secret message said, “Snack is missing.

Last updated Wednesday, October 22, 2014 Last week I added a new element to our circle time routine in my two- and three-year-olds classes…a simple weather check.
I wanted some sort of hands-on manipulative to keep the children engaged and make the concept of weather more tangible, so I decided to try my hand at making some simple weather sensory bottles. These sensory bottles only took a few minutes to make using bits and bobs from my craft stash, and the children really respond to them. To make these bottles, I used fillable craft bottles I found at Hobby Lobby, but you could use any size bottle you wish. Here are all of the different bottles I made- they coordinate with the weather choices on our little chart.
For cloudy I used three jumbo white pom poms and some tap water. Our rainy bottle has small blue glass beads for raindrops, three brownish/gray pom poms (I swear they looked gray at 1:00 am the night I made these) for clouds, and the glycerin/water mixture. And there you have it. Accueil - Corpus - réseau Canopé. Leçon - Les doigts de la main - Le Monde des Petits. Leçon - Le visage - Le Monde des Petits. Leçon - Le corps humain - Le Monde des Petits.

Dancing Raisins Science Experiment. The Dancing Raisins science experiment is so cool! It is also super easy to do which makes it perfect for our classic Summer Science Camp series! Dancing Raisins Experiment: clear sodas (we used Sprite, Mountain Dew and tonic water)raisinsclear glasseswater (for the control) Fill clear glasses each with a different type of soda. We found that using soda that hadn’t been refrigerated and was at room temperature worked best for observing since no condensation formed on the side of the glass.
We you add raisins into the soda they begin to “dance” around the glass. We also added raisins to a glass of water to see if something besides soda would cause the raisins to dance but they just sank to the bottom. How Does It Work? The raisins are more dense than the soda so they sink to the bottom. Isn’t Summer Science Camp fun??? Make sure to join us every Thursday for classic science experiments your kids will love! Head over to What Do We Do All Day? Pink Stripey Socks: Make Tortilla Art! The other day I was staring at some leftover tortillas and a thought suddenly dawned on me. These lovely flat circles would make great canvases. So Chuck and I pulled out a couple of items from our kitchen and began painting some colorful edible art!
Edible Art: Let's Paint Tortillas! Materials Needed to Make Tortilla Art We each got a corn tortilla, spoon, straw, toothpicks and a lettuce "paintbrush. " (I ripped a lettuce leaf into strands, placed them in a bundle, and tied them together with a rubber band.) To create the paint, I just placed a couple drops of food coloring mixed with water into the wells of a mini muffin tin. Invitation to Create- Let's Make Tortilla Art!
Then Chuck and I just began playing around with the materials. Here is some of our edible tortilla artwork! Two ways to extend this activity: Ooh. Paper Plate Skeleton.
