Exploring with Glass Jugs, Beads and Other Natural Materials



Little Monsters love exploring with natural materials. We added Glass Jugs into the mix, as they make a much more exciting sound than plastic. (This is definitely a supervised (by an adult), 3 years + activity and no more than 3 children exploring at a time!) 
We used a little plastic scooper (and our hands) to  transfer the beads and shells safely, between the glass jugs. The kids explored sound and textures, as they transferred, counted and separated.
We talked about volume and mass and how to play responsibly with glass!

What we used:
Glass Jugs - different sizes with lids and tops
Plastic Scooper
Glass Beads
Rice
Shells
