Bring in a real coconut and have the
children feel it, shake it and listen to the sound. Use a hammer and
nail to make a hole then drain the milk. Wrap the coconut in a towel
and crack it open with the hammer. Use a potato peeler to scrape
small pieces for tasting. If the taste of the coconut isn't what
they expected, invite them to taste shredded baking coconut. (of
course remember to check for allergies before this activity)
Water Table Fun
By Christa of Preschool Education .Com
I take a foam alphabet puzzle and pop out the
letters. I fill my water table with sand and add the letters to the table.
While at a thrift shop I found a small blow up palm tree. I added that to
the table. ( I think you can get one from Oriental
company ) The kids played with this everyday.
