Wild Rumpus: Week 9, wrapping up the summer!

Our final Rumpus of the summer was.... wet.  Because.... of course.

Rather than showing you all of the different activities that happened today, let's focus on just one. 

Chalk + Water:

Rainwater dripped from the roof and was fun to collect in various containers--

There were several different techniques going on at once.  One technique involved smashing the chalk in a bucket of water:

The second technique involved rubbing the chalk on the ground until a pile of the wet chalk dust built up, then wiping a hand across to pick up the chalk and swirl it into the water.

 The third technique (which was less about making colored water like the first two and more about making bright chalk drawings) involved dipping the chalk into water before drawing with it.

The last Rumpus of the summer wrapped up with some excellent puddle jumping.  See you all next summer!  (Don't forget to try out AnjiPlayDate, Wednesday mornings at the Lussier Community Education Center this fall through Nov. 13! 10:30 am -12:30 pm)

I use the term "Anji Play" to describe my programming and throughout this blog with the explicit permission of Ms. Cheng because our programming has been developed as part of a close collaborative relationship with her and her team of Anji Play educators.
