Rolling the Dice!
Wire (and Wood) Workshop
Children continued their sculptures today as they twisted, bent, and looped wire, often attaching it to a wood base. While Maisie was manipulating her wire, she realized that she would like a base for it, and took time to pound one together. In addition to the creativity and problem solving involved, children are really using their small muscle skills as they make changes to the wire or use tools to cut and bend it.

Being together and building together are often highlights of our day. Today children built on the light table with some familiar materials and some that were more novel (plastic Easter eggs). It didn't take long for children to agree that they were building a hotel, which seems to be a common construction theme for this group. After the hotel was completed, the plastic eggs became the people taking advantage of all that the hotel had to offer, including room service and a peaceful blue pool built by Lily. The group also had a fantastic time together outside on this beautiful day!
