Hot, Hot, Hot! This week has been pretty hot, so we have been taking the opportunity to use the spray park as much as possible while we still have summer left! The children have so much fun running through the water, their favorite thing to do is put their foot over the sprinkler to block the water from coming out than removing their foot to shoot the water out again! We have also been exploring different dark spaces; some children have been crawling under the table and finding different hiding spots within the room to explore. So first we brought in the parachute to play with, the children enjoyed running on top of the parachute and grabbing all the handles and making the parachute wave and move. Then we showed the children how to hide under the parachute, we had lots of fun and shared lots of giggles with one another. The next day we brought the tunnel into our room, rather than crawling through the tunnel, the children figured out that everyone could fit in the tunnel when they all laid down. We had fun kicking our feet against the tunnel walls to make the tunnel wave and move too!
