Exploring Kidfetti!

In the Walnut Room, Kidefetti is located in one of the dry water tables. Inside of the Kidfetti are various fish, starfish, and shells for the children to search for. The tools that are available to the children while they engage at this table are tongs for looking for the plastic toys, a searching sheet to see what is hiding in the Kidfetti or may be already found, and plastic cups. Ever since it was added, there have been many different ways children have gone about exploring this discovery area in the Walnut room.

"This is a yellow fish swimming in the water. Look at how it's tail is above the water" -Pemisire

Graeme had a cup in one hand and tongs in the other. He used them to pick each fish up and place them into the cup he was holding. "I found all the fish in here!" -Graeme

"This stuff feels cool. Its hard and small and colorful." -James
Lily was pouring the Kidfetti from one cup to the next and missed part of the cup and spilled some on the floor. She saw the teacher grab the broom, asked if she can help, and then said, "I like picking this up. A lot spilled from my cup." - Lily P. J. 

"Can I help clean up too? I spilled some on accident" -Graeme
