We have used our rain gutters for so many different activities! This week I set it across the sand box to see what they would do with it. In addition to pouring sand in it, they lined all the farm animals on it and said it was a bridge to the farm. More precisely, the sand was "snow" and the animals had to get across.
I happened to have warm water in the water table nearby. One of these boys decided some of the animals needed a hot bath after being in the "snow".
They also needed towels and snuggles.
I will never tire of watching where my preschoolers take something as simple as a rain gutter and farm animals and turn it into something so precious!
Here are some of our favorite farm books:
