We’ve been doing some baking this week – made our Christmas cake, complete with wishes – and L was really interested in the scales we were using. In the past, although she’s always joined in, it’s been big sister who’s done most of the weighting, so it was interesting this time too see L looking closely at all those numbers and trying to weigh her own hand. Time for an experiment to answer L’s repeated question: what does it weigh?
We’ve been enjoying some water play this week, as requested by the children. They love the sensory play element and I love that it’s the cleanest messy play activity around! The addition of a few extra materials, and some question prompts from me, turned their water play into some science experiments and maths play.
