Sensory play is a favorite activity in the toddler room at the Farmington / Canandaigua center! Daily experiences with sensory activities provide important educational opportunities for young children to explore their world.
Recently, the Ladybug toddlers learned about the color purple through a variety of hands-on play experiences. This included sensory and visual fun in creating foam! The children helped measure amounts of soap and water to place in a pan. They then took a hand mixer to create foam. Adding purple paint to the mixture incorporated the color of the week!
The classroom teachers then talked with the children about how the foam felt and how it looked during their play and after the foam bubbles broke down. The ladybugs have had such fun that they have asked to enjoy this bubbly fun almost daily!
