Materials Play in the Morning Week 2

Yeah, I'm already a week behind on reporting out on our new weekly (in Jan & Feb) materials experience for toddlers. I'll let you know right now that I don't hold out hope for getting caught up, but I'll do my best to share something from each week of this program by.....June. Tissue Paper Mountain I called it. With things hiding inside, as you may have spotted.

at The Eric Carle Museum

Destruction of the mountain was tentative at first, with just a couple of children and their parents present. After more friends joined, and a little tearing and tossing on the adults' part, everyone just went wild. The tricky thing was not slipping on the paper when things got really wild. By the time it started getting too slippery it was easy to then invite the transition to gluing the tissue (in wads, hunks, mounds, strips and shapes) onto large pieces of watercolor with liquid laundry starch.
