The Toddlers took advantage of the cold weather today to conduct some science experiments. They wanted to know if it was cold enough outside to freeze water. Salt was also added to two of the water containers to see what would happen. We learned today that even very salty water will freeze at -44 degrees, although it takes quite a bit longer to solidify.

What are sensory bins?

Sensory bins are filled with interesting materials that engage the senses, handily explored in a container that limits mess. They facilitate self-directed and play-based learning, fine motor practice, language development, improved focus and confidence, and are just plain fun. Enep’ut’s kids are concentrating hard on their play – check out their facial expressions on Facebook!

Last Friday, our first Professional Development day of 2015, the staff had a fun morning at the center. We designed and put together developmentally appropriate sensory activities for the Infant/Toddlers and Preschool. It was a blast!
