Center-Wide Water Play

by Administrator 18. June 2013 11:05

Happy Tuesday!  Today we are hosting our first all center water day.  As I write this, the children are still running around the playground squealing and shrieking in the water.  When I ventured outside to see how things were going, I was pleasantly surprised by all of the good things I saw going on.  I saw the children playing in the bubbly water, asking their friends if they wanted to get wet.  I saw some children going from tub to tub, mixing the colored water to make new colors.  I saw children, splashing in the puddles, and sliding down the slide.  I even saw a few children scooping water to measure in the measuring cups.  No matter their age, the children were talking to one another, trying to get everyone involved in the fun.  I was even proud to see that the more popular items such as the spray bottles were being shared with ease.  The staff are wandering around the playground,  trying to avoid the streams of water that are flying around.  I must say, each year, the water seems a little colder to me.  It makes me happy to see that even when we do an activity that would be considered out of the regular routine, the children are using the skills that we are instilling everyday.  I saw them using their manners, building their friendships, and keeping their sense of humor.  Several of the staff have stopped me to tell me what a good time they had watching the children so engrossed in their play.
