Invitation to Create Hocus Pocus Potion
This invitation to create Hocus Pocus Potion on the Excellerations® Outdoor Sensory Mixing Table is the perfect way to ignite creativity and a child's imagination through play for Halloween.
With just water plus drops of Colorations and Liquid Water Colors (Lime, Purple, Orange, Black), Halloween Creatures, Graduated Cylinders, Beakers, and a Ladle, children are left to create and explore potion making.
With water a child will spend ages scooping, pouring, and stirring. An invitation such as this enables children to experiment with science and math concepts. Children begin to understand and investigate with ideas such as more/less, same/different, many/few, empty/full, before/after, greater than/less than. They also learn physics principles such as the effects of force (increasing the water flow through increased force); effects of gravity (water runs downhill) etc. Children also gain physical learning through water play, such as precision in pouring, eye-hand coordination, and other skills. Exploring with water is captivating, engaging, engrossing and absorbing to almost all children.
Being able to bring more sensory experiences with this table for outdoor exploration is optimal for any environment. By expanding a child's outdoor play it helps develop their sensory, motor, and cognitive skills. Anytime a child is outside it lays a great foundation for learning, and the more varied the environments are the more synapses are formed in a child's brain. This sensory table provides the perfect opportunity for varied environments.
Not only is this table sturdy, it does not need to be covered or put away in harsh weather because it is made of FSC Certified Eucalyptus Wood that is durable and does not need to be pre-treated. This table surely is one of the best investments to provide multiple opportunities of creativity throughout the seasons and grows with a child as they get older.
