Cornstarch and Watercolor!


I wanted to share these pictures of two year old friends from You're Invited Childrens Center. We put out some containers of cornstarch, cups of water colored water with eyedroppers, scrapers and scoops and a bunch of small bowls. This activity is best done outside so the friends (and teachers) dont have to be nervous about a mess. As the pictures show, we didnt worry about the mess :)

What learning is going on in this activity?
Science - mixing, solid vs liquid, color combinations
Cause and Effect
Textures
Fine motor skills
Math - estimating, quantities
Can you help name more learning that is happening during this activity?
