Tulip welcomed us into her world today.  As soon as the children got outside, after we had told them that they could play on her, they made a swift beeline to crawl through her hole and climb on the bench and sit on the throne.

The children also spent time assessing their own planning, design-work, and constructing by drawing Tulip.

We also brought out the tactile tub today and the children made all sorts of discoveries.  They began with clear water.

And dirt…  And magical rocks that change color when you immerse them in water.

And as well as reconstructing the process of cobbing, they also deconstructed some cob balls.
