this is one of the best things i’ve done this year. so often i’ve wished for a really shallow sensory table type tub that can’t be slid off the table, etc. one day i realized that one of our hula hoops would fit perfectly on top of one of our small tables.
so, hula hoop + duct tape = table with an edge!
we change it out every week and have had great success with it being a standing work space. (and this table full of goodness is a combination of my personal dice collection and a huge bag of thrifted game pieces. score!)
this week we also had ribbon hanging down over the table for snipping practice.
our tiny fingers really get a work out (i think i worked for almost 10 seconds to pick up a teeny googly eye one day).
we had a sinking/floating experiment on here one day (no photo!), so i taped on towels for hand drying.
talk about an opportunity for cooperative play…there are six children around this tiny table!
