Welcome to Paula's Preschool and Kindergarten! My class blog is the place I share information about some of the fun learning activities we are doing at school. I hope to provide parents with insight into what we are doing, and why, and to share ideas with other early childhood educators.

Roll 6 and splash!

Browsing Pinterest recently (an addiction!) I discovered an idea from www.toddlerapproved.com that really looked like fun: Roll 6 and splash.  It seemed simple enough, involving a shallow container of water, a dice, and some children, and as it is incredibly hot here in Texas during the summer, I thought we'd give it a try.  Wow!  Awesome fun for the kiddos, who have asked for it every day since!

 The kiddos took turns rolling a dice.  If they rolled a 6, they got to splash.  This was the first splash, so everyone was still dry, and no-one quite knew how far the splashes would go!
 Oh joy!
 I have to admit, after a few minutes of patiently rolling the dice and waiting for a 6, the game degenerated into a major splash fest!

 Yes, the kiddos were completely soaked, completely happy, and pretty well cooled off for the afternoon.
Will we play it again?  Are you kidding?  We already have!
