AnjiPlayDate, week 2: Water engineering galore!

This week, the preschoolers were joined by a few older homeschool kids.  One of the things I love about Anji Play is that the open-ended materials work equally well for people of all ages.  Older kids play differently with the materials than younger kids do, but it's fascinating to see them play side-by-side.  Here's a video of some water play that happened this week:
 I love how you can see him making different discoveries as he improves the design and watching how the kids interact together is fascinating to me.

We also brought in an old overhead projector this week inspired by Bakers & Astronauts.
The kids were doing early explorations with it -- putting objects on the screen, layering them, moving the projection higher and lower on the wall.  We did need to remove some pieces from the top of the lamp when it began getting hot.  Looking forward to seeing this progress next week!
 May you find a different perspective that brings you joy this week!

Please note: "Anji Play,” refers to a specific philosophy and comprehensive approach to early education developed by Ms. Cheng Xueqin in Anji County, China. 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.
