Today the children were involved in a slime experience. Many of the children were interested in the experience, and it was great to see the different reactions from the children. For some children, they were more than happy to just sit and watch, while others were quick to get involved and play with the slime while others tried to eat the slime. When the educators first introduced this into the room, the children were very curious as they saw the educators get everything ready into the container and then once it was done the children were very quick to get their hands into the slime.
