As you can see, the children were very excited and helped me to pick off the box tape.
In the boxes were 2 active world trays, and active world stand and cover, some sparkly fish, sparkly numbers and some PVA glue. We also ordered some shaped mirror trays which are being sent separately. Hopefully they will arrive this week too..
We put one active world tray up in the garden and filled it with a few centimeters of bubbly water and the squidgy fish and numbers. The children enjoyed finding them under the bubbles, hiding them underneath and filling and tipping water from containers.
Exploring the squidgy fish
I would like to thank everyone for all the generous donations of Tesco vouchers. We were lucky enough to collect over 6000 and although it was a pain counting them all out, it has been an excellent way to purchase some much needed new equipment which would otherwise prove very expensive. The equipment we ordered totals over £300, so thank you to everyone who helped to raise so many vouchers. We are very grateful.
I hope to write lots more blogs about other sensory activities that we will be using the active world trays for over the coming weeks.
