Exploring our loose parts area, the Toddlers have been expanding their imaginations and creativity.
What could it be? A megaphone, a telescope, balancing logs for us to walk on, or we can even build towers! Working together and helping each other stacking the tubes, looking through them, seeing how they fall and placing the planks to make ramps, the children investigated lots different ways to use the materials. Holding up the tube, they shouted, “hello!” and looking through it at our friends like a telescope was the most fun!
