Of course just placing several objects in a basket wasn’t enough for this momma, however it’s actually a great idea. I might do that next time for something different. This time I decided to use our DIY Light table, our perfect continent molds and Montessori 3 part cards. I prepared the day before making sure I had the cards laminated for easy wipe off, and added the colored water to our molds. I also used a regular ice tray to freeze colored ice cubes. They would easily freeze in a couple of hours, if you wanted to prepare this in the morning for some afternoon fun. I set everything out on our light table and let them enjoy the activity.
