Week 14 - Activity Guide

“The senses, being explorers of the world, open the way to knowledge.  Our apparatus for educating the sense offers the child a key to guide his explorations of the world...” - Dr. Maria Montessori 

Bu & Perridak Under 2s

Sensory bags; using zip lock bags, fill them with rice, lentils, cook spaghetti, shaving foam or gel.  Add leaves, sticks, gum nuts or flowers to these for the children to find whilst playing.  Tape to the floor or windows for bubba to enjoy.

Go-Yin 2 to 3 years

Sand foam play: mixing shaving foam and sand together, create a fun, textured sensory exploration activity for the children to touch, manipulate and sculpt.  Add diggers, spoons, cups and cars, to allow the children to support their fine motor skills, balance and manipulate tools for further exploration and investigations.

Ngurr-Ngurr 3 to 6 years

Fluffy and rainmaking; using corn flour, water get the children to mix the items together, experimenting with adding water.  See how the children can change it from a liquid to solid and back again.  For added fun, add animals to the experience to see if they can walk on top, sink through or have the mixture rain upon them.

Mon-Garrk Primary school

Create you own lava lamp; using an old bottle, water oil, food colouring and Alka-Seltzer challenge your children to create their own lava lamp, experimenting with quantities and colours.

Djila-Tjarri Exercise time

Hide and seek tiggy; have a person count to 20 whilst the rest of the family hide.  When ready go and seek them out, but when you are spotted, don’t get caught; run, run and run.........
