They children had to lay their drawings outside so they would dry. Once their drawings were dry it was time for the fun painting. The children even decided to add a touch of glitter they were so proud of their Spring flowers.

The children have been asking why is it so important to put on sunscreen before outside play. Some of the children do not like putting on sunscreen so i made it into activity so that the children had a better understanding. The children were asked to fold their black paper into two halves. Then they were asked to put sunscreen on one side. I asked the children what their predictions were if we put the sunscreen and leave their paper on the sun.The children said that the paper were fall apart.So they gave it a try and found out that the side with no sunscreen had turn into gray with discolored spots and the other side that had sunscreen was still the same color black.

The children did a science experiment with a dry paper towel, a glass cup, and a tray filled up with water. The children filled up the tray first. Then they all placed their paper inside the glass cup. The children all predicted that if the cup and the towel would go on they tray that it would come out wet. One of the children predicted that the glass would protect the towel so it would come out dry. Each child put their cups upside down inside the tray. When they took the cup out they couldn’t believe that the towel came out dry, the children said its just like magic !
