Today we enjoyed making and playing with these gel bags, inspired from http://www.teachpreschool.org/2011/08/bright-and-colorful-sensory-bags-for-preschool/
We used hair gel and paint and sealed them up in a zip lock bag. A wonderful conversation filled with descriptive language evolved as they squeezed and squished and prodded:
“Oh, It’s cold!” . . . “It’s squishy!” . . . . “blue and green make yellow!” . . . . “it sounds sloshy!” . . . .
One of our girls shared a wonderful idea: “we could recycle the containers. If we wash them we can reuse them.”
This sounds like the makings of a wonderful new project all about recycling.
