Boxes + jars of paint = way too much fun!
I am not sure what the wooden box was originally used for but it works wonderfully with marbles!
This keeps the kids busy for a long time.
The younger ones place the marbles in the slots while the older ones take time to sort by size or colour.
All done on their own, I just set it up and watch how they play.
I do have younger ones here at my daycare and marbles can be very dangerous (choking hazard ) so this activity is supervised.
The lid was fun too.
I had a whole bunch of balls that the kids just threw around the daycare.. We needed a purpose for them, so I made colour tubes! I went to the hardware store and picked up these bends I think for plumbing and strapped them to the wall in our discovery area. I then painted them colours to match the balls and placed a container underneath to catch them. It works amazingly! The kids love it! And so do i … no more balls being thrown around.
Our first project was bean bags!
