Learning Through Thoughtful Play
Annie,How many times do the kids play in the messy stuff, wash their hands, then go back to play again?? Mine seem to be doing this more and more lately, I know it's not because they have sensory issues with the material, I think it's just because they want to wash those little hands over and over. I don't mind the big kids, but the little ones (that need to be helped with the whole process) it is beginning to hurt my back ;) Any suggestions?? Do you have this problem?? I don't know if I should curtail it or allow them to do it... Thanks... Michelle, with her aching back :)
Hi Michelle! Good to see you :) and....yes!! They do it all the time. Depends on how many kids I have. If there are only a few I will let them do the washing...If I have a whole bunch at the table at the same time I tell them once they wash their hands, they are done. It is a good activity..the washing hands. but having all 8 run to wash their hands gets a little silly. I am sure putting a water table next to the shaving cream would alleviate the washing hands....but that is a whole other mess!!! my sink is low...so they can do it themselves. The sink is My 3 little 2 year olds favorite spot!!
Thank Annie!!I agree, my littlest guys absolutely love the sink. I have even tried the water table idea, but they love the running water from the sink. I think I will try to give them a little more access to the sink when I can, it is a lot of fun. Thanks!! Oh, I love your playhouse!!!
I have to say that for the past couple of hours i have been hooked by the amazing articles on this blog .http://clearcareonline.com/
