How is the provider encouraging children to take responsibility for the materials they use?

She is suggesting that they help put the water toys out to dry on the table.  She models how to squeeze and shake the water out of the toys before putting them on the table.

How does the provider address the difference in the age of the children?

She encourages all the children to participate in cleaning up the toys to whatever degree they are willing and able to help.  At first one child helps while the others continue to play.  Later, each child puts a few toys away.
