Quinn

Some of you may think 'oh my gosh, no way'....some may think 'very cool!'....I think 'so much learning is going on right here', not to mention Quinn is very engaged, calm, quiet, lovely, and green. We did this with the older kids and it lasted about 15-20 minutes. They used up stuff quickly and got a little invested, but not like Quinn. Our lil Quinn was here for over an hour!! What we had here were mounds of baking soda in a tin container and baby food jars with yellow and blue vinegar with pipettes.
It started out like this.....

Mixing blue and yellow together......


He is also working on his fine motor skills with the pipettes....and finding out what happens when blue and yellow are mixed together, and what happens when you add vinegar to baking soda, and 'what is that funny smell anyway?'....vinegar



Hmmmm, what would happen if I put it up here on my arm? And not only is he watching it fall from his arm in different patterns, but when it drys it leaves a different pasty feel on your hand that cracks and peels...he liked that too!
Here he is pulling it up from the bottom and dripping it back in off his fingers, because it is watery on top and gooey on the bottom.....Don't EVER let anyone tell you this little one is ADD cuz he's not! You just need to find what interests him! :)

Ok, seriously...Quinn's family ever moves to North Dakota, I want him in MY daycare! He is so stinkin' adorable!!!
I agree...I'm constantly telling parents/people that kids do not have short attention spans when they have interesting things to do. And I've seen far too many kids diagnosed with ADD that were just bored.

Annie, You brought "Go Green" to a whole new level, lol! He is intensely interested and focused. In the early childhood setting we often must assess how long a child can 'STAY ON TASK'. 'Fluffy talk' for how
long he can stay focused on an activity. That's where creative thinking teacher's like you come in. Setting up Quinn for success by knowing what kids love! Quinn doesn't know he is being prepared to focus in the classroom & for homework indirectly through this activity...but we do.
Great Job, Annie! Keep up the fabulous work!

I came across your blog about a week and a half ago. I LOVE all the activities you do with the kids. I own a daycare, and today I set out the baking soda, blue and yellow vinegar, and medicine droppers (my pipettes haven't come in the mail yet). The kids LOVED this. Thanks for the idea. :)
