The fact that they were encouraged to play around was fun for them, though that is much more up Joshua's alley than George's. Joshua played a LOT longer in the shaving cream. He is much more tactile oriented, and he got really creative with it (like seeing shapes in clouds). It made me realize how I need to make more of an effort in planning activities for them - it was simple and quick, and they really enjoyed it. And I need to pay attention to how each of them learns - definitely two learning styles here. I have a lot of ideas of what we will do in our pre-schooling sessions, but I NEED to get the space in order before I can focus on that. Yes, we're starting "school" late this year, but I guess that's one of the benefits of doing it from home (especially pre-school).
Josh loving the sensation of squishy shaving cream.
I definitely gave the plastic mat to the right kid. I couldn't find my vinyl tablecloth, and only had one of these, so we went with it.
