After yesterdays sorting counting and using containers, I thought I would set up a similar environment outside this morning – but with added items to see what the children did with them.

So to the selection of plastic containers, cones, pebbles, wooden circles, balls and bean bags – I added seed trays and pot trays (as from garden centers), some shells and some large tubes (pipes). Then waited to see what the children did.

I was not disappointed Shona took the wooden circles placed them carefully – including telling her friends where to put them when they wanted to help and made what she described as a ‘snake’.

As a group of 4 two year olds they then explored the shell collection – picking shells up and examining them and describing them (and bringing the ‘best ones’ to show me). After a while they carefully arranged the shells on one of the wooden circles – as you can see in the photo.


Further collections of things and arranging of things then took place, again as can be seen in the photo’s.
