Big idea – Senses – Story Time Activity (Quirindi pre-school)

After sharing the story of ‘Thomas and Grandpa’ who visited the   beach, built sandcastles and splashed in the water and listened to the sea sing. We enjoyed a sensory experience withour feet with wet sand and sand and rocks.

                                                 Thomas and Grandpa’s sandcastle had a tunnel right through the  base of the sandcastle, we enjoyed making tunnels in the sand and feeling each other’s wiggly fingers and toes.  To extend the experience while we were dusting the sand of our feet we sang the Nursery Rhyme ‘This Little Piggy Went to Market’ using each other’s toes. The educators had a turn to demonstrate how the song went  with children’s toes and the children had a turn on the educators toes.
