Open ended materials used at our daycare are usually sand,water table, blocks, playdough, a tub we have with McDonald’s toys. We have plenty of lakeshore learning table toys etc but I learn today that we have to be open minded to other things other than the normal for open ended learning. From this point on we will think of other thing that can go in the sand and water table that children can explore and have open minded experiences.

I am looking forward to being on the alert for things to collect out of the norm for our daycare to explore open ended materials
