Mommy and Me Toddler Water Table Manhattan BeachSeptember 30, 2010 No Comments
My son had a blast today in our mommy and me class at the South Bay Adult School in Manhattan Beach, California. We meet there every Tuesday morning from 9:30am to 11:30am. When we first get there, we all sing songs together welcoming each child, then teaching sign language or showing pictures of animals etc. After that, we have an art project we work on. Today, we were having our children draw on paper for their first piece of artwork! Most of the toddlers are walking already and a bit older. Our son Christian is almost 1 year old, so he hasn’t quite grasped the concept of drawing yet as he only wants to eat the chalk. Christian is going to have to wait longer before we can try to draw, but some of the older children created some real Picassos!
After snack, we all went outside for playtime. We’ve had a heat wave here lately, so I thought Christian might really love playing at the water table they have outside. I took off his clothes except his diaper and lead him to it. I couldn’t believe how much fun he had! He was spashing like crazy, yelling with laughter and getting soaked in the process. I took a ton of pictures and video as this was his first encounter with a water table. I wish we could buy him one for his birthday because I know that Step 2 has one that small children love that’s not too expensive, but we are heading into the cooler season here.
If it’s hot next week, I’m going to let him dive in again!
