t is for tracks

train tracks

my idea was to have trays of fine colored sand to move trains through to make tracks.  i even matched the train cars with the color of sand.  i didn’t expect it to stay seperate, but i was curious how long it would.


the children were interested in this for about 15 minutes.  then they began scooping and piling it up.

scooping sand

by the next day, i released and added cups and spoons.  it was like 6 zen gardens.  there was quiet, quiet work of spooning sand from tray to cup, from cup to tray.

scooping sand

children, the best leaders.
