Ms. Sam's infant 1 class had a blast playing with pumpkins last week. At TLC, we are constantly observing what the children stay most engaged with so we can plan activities that promote engagement and learning. Ms. Sam noticed her children love playing in water and will stay engaged for longer when water is involved, so she created this water pumpkin sensory bin. The children played in the bubbles, cleaning the pumpkins and pouring water in and out of the pumpkins.
The next activity the infant 1 class did with pumpkins was using the lids to stamp paint onto paper. This is a great way for children to discover different way to create and encourage their artistic curiosity.
