I thought I would start a new photo series with you called Simple Provocations. Most of the things Jack and Sarah do each day are really very simple play ideas; chalk and water, painting rocks, playing with loose parts in the sandpit, that sort of thing.
I mentioned in a post about my day, some of the different invitations I put out for the kids each day. I thought I would share a few photos in this new series. They’re all easy and inexpensive and use materials which are pretty readily available.
I set these up in the morning for the kids to explore when they feel inspired.
This is the simple provocation I set up for Jack (5.5 yrs) and Sarah (3.5 yrs) yesterday.
Coloured water with a dash of wallpaper paste powder (just makes it a little gooey) in squeezy condiment bottles, measuring cups, funnel, small pots and other random loose parts for scooping and pouring.
(Here’s a short Instagram video of the kids playing)
Have fun! 🙂
