Find the Big Dipper
This week for Playful Preschool we’re talking about Nighttime. I chose to play around with the stars for us. Since our move we are now able to see the stars shine so bright. So we did a couple of projects and I chose to share this one to share with you all today.
Welcome all to another Playful Preschool post. If you would like to follow along then check out the hash tag #Playfulpreschool and check at the bottom of this post for more hands on play.
We are working with lowercase and uppercase letters and Fro Baby is getting better. So I came up with a little game of find the big dipper.
What you need
- Dry sensory material
- Pen or pencil
- Star stickers
- Double stick tape
- Big bin
How I made it happen
- I dotted out the big dipper
- Replaced the dots with uppercase letters
- Wrote the matching lowercase letters on the star stickers
- Placed dubbed sided tape to the paper and stuck the paper to the bottom of the bin.
- Poured beans on top and let the fun begin.
First thing Fro Baby did was play in the beans. It was so funny to watch her reaction when she seen something under the beans. She started to sweep them out the way and found the stickers and big dipper sheet.
