|putting an Ikea child's table together - the children helping out...|
|Using the legs of a second table was one of the ideas the children had to solve the problem - but it didn't quite work... so back to thinking, thinking again|
|Using the protective material from the packaging didn't work either|
|So the children tried out using cushions - and even making it "as high as the air" - but still it didn't really work as a table... So the children looked around the room...|
|And the sensory experience of the day was old coffee grinds (dried) and marbles. Plenty of moving the grinds around, and smelling the coffee (another sense to use, not just touch) - and even some marble sorting too.|
|and if the grinds got everywhere there was a pot and a brush to sweep them up from the table (although this became a big attraction and children carefully poured grinds onto the edge so that they could do some sweeping!)|
and it was worth it... one of the children looked up, beaming from ear to ear - and said "Ni är bäst"
You (plural) are best!!
