Materials needed: Small and large (sidewalk chalk), black construction paper, cups of water
The children dip the chalk in water and draw on the black paper. It is pretty amazing to watch the brilliance of the chalk as it dries, and it dries quickly!
Show The Light
Materials needed: black and yellow construction paper scraps, glue sticks, white paper.
Have the children rip the black and yellow paper with their hands (no scissors, we are building up those hand muscles today!) and glue the black on one side of the white paper and the yellow on the other half.
Cooking with children helps develop their math skills and helps them to learn how to follow directions. It also allows for some great conversation! Ask many questions while cooking with your children to encourage conversation! Be sure to ask specific themed questions while making these fun snacks!
Light and Dark Crackers
Materials needed: Graham crackers, softened cream cheese, grape jelly, spoons and plastic knives
The children spread jelly on one cracker and cream cheese on the other: Darkness and then light!
