A new material in the Walnut room was insta-snow, placed at the sensory table. The children explored the texture and movement of the insta-snow. Children tried to pack the insta-snow into snowballs and compared it to the actual snow they played with outside. They soon realized that the insta-snow had less uses than actual snow. This new addition to the Walnut room is sure to spark new discovery and discussion.
