On the patio of every preschool classroom, 3-6 year olds. REAL metal hammers, pliers, clamps, wood scraps, safety glasses and yes real nails. Available to the children anytime. Absolutely fantastic!!!!
Worms Eye-View: " This was first created for a child who spent most of his time inside playing with the cars and garage. I wanted to encourage him to try new things so added this to entice him outside but with a familiar toy.This area encourages conversation and we have already had lots of chats about traffic lights and what the different lights mean. We talked about what side of the road cars drive on and some road safety as well" ≈≈
Make a space for saving all the sticks that get collected on trips outside. Lots of ideas for using the stick collection later: Stick letters, stick sculptures, stick jigsaws etc. From "Im a teacher, get me OUTSIDE here!"
