Sometimes accidents turn into the best surprises!
On this day, I was washing out the sensory tub, leaving the sensory table top open, and exposing the contents below. Underneath our sensory tub is a storage shelf, and this is where I store funnels, measuring cups, pitchers, sink/float items, wooden spoons, sifters, etc.
The children re-discovered the magnets, which have been ignored for the better part of the year. Instead of filling the sensory table with water like I had planned, we filled it with magnets instead.
|The girls have a magnet war. They noticed that their wands attracted each other, and they spent twenty minutes hooking their wands together, then pulling them apart!|
|They literally pulled with all their might to pull the wands apart! Not only did they learn about magnetic attraction and exercise their large muscles, but they sure had a blast!|
