Scour the Thrift Stores for Animals to add to your space (Don't forget to check with your clients, they may have some for you to borrow this week.
This fun Antarctic Dramatic Play Space was created by commmunity member
Erica P. of Erica's Educare Learning Center
The fabulous dramatic play space was created by Daycare Spaces member Amy M, of BuggaBee & Me Daycare. She provided a variety of penguins and cold weather dress-up gear.
Construction & Small world play Area
Create an environment for penguins in your Construction Space this week. Add sheets of white felt, and White Blocks (Which can be made by painting them, or wrapping them with paper). Since Penguins can also be found in warm weather area add additional construction items that might represent both cold weather and warm weather (sandy & rocky) areas.
Light Tables & Sensory Play
Light tables are growing popularity amongst childcare providers.
The following Light table "Penguin Habitat" was designed by Daycare Spaces community member Kathleen M, of Little Blue CastleChildcare.
Kathleen created an "Iceberg" by adding printing real photos of penguins on icebergs, and placing them in page protectors and adhering them to a box.
She added shiny blue "Cellophane" paper water, which she taped down with packing tape to create the look of water currents and waves.
She also added objects that would resemble snow, ice and icebergs: Cotton balls, Cotton pads, metallic & white cupcake liners, blue milk caps, and a lot of small blue and clear glass gems.
Kathleen also added Blue finger lights to the space, to add that extra special "Glow".
Kathleen added a disco ball to represent the Aurora Australia.
