When I saw these small plungers while out shopping last week I knew I had to have them. Now I realise not everyone would look at sink plungers and immediately think ‘yes, I need 5 of them!” but it’s the way my mind works!
Actually the look the cashier gave me as I plonked them all down at the checkout was indeed quite priceless. Is it just me or do you find yourself often saying “I run a family day care service they aren’t just for me”.
It encouraged lots of communication about colours and big circles. The older girls also worked out they could make patterns and representations like caterpillars.
The toddlers just loved being able to use their muscles and push down hard on the paper to make circles and splatters.
They make lovely prints and the children were very excited to show their parents their ‘circles’ that afternoon.
