Inspired Play Activity (June 2018)
This month the theme was related to rain and sensorial experiences. Children created their own rain filling up glasses with water and shaving foam and then, drop by drop, adding food dye. By doing this, the food dye falls down into the water through the shaving foam, giving a sense of raining.
Also, they expanded their sensorial background by playing with soap and sponges in a tank of water and using their feet to feel stones and pieces of wood immersed in a second tank.
Experimenting through play is part of Inspired Play Activities at Yamata Kindergarten and it develops a deeper understanding of the world that surrounds us.
