Today we played with tin foil, glitter glue, and construction paper for a free form process art experience.
We shredded and cut and ripped the tin foil. We twisted, glued, balled it up, tore it some more, rolled it and more. Sometimes we got a little carried away with the glitter glue. But, then again, is there ever a thing as too much glitter glue?
Write or say a sequence of numbers and leave one out. What number was left out?
1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7? What's missing?
Play this game throughout the day. Try it by counting out groups of legos, baby carrots, and even try letters.
A, B, C, D, F, G? What's missing?
