I’m embarrassed to say that it’s been three years since we used the record player at the art table. I’m not sure why because it attracts the children that are the least likely to chose the art table to explore. That was reinforced again today.
It’s mostly boys that I’m talking about. Boys that are always on the move
and don’t like to sit and do but prefer to be up and go.
There were little brothers wanting to not to be left out.
Reaching in to be sure he got his turn even though he could barely see over
the record player.
We added a stool to make it easier to reach and to see what was happening.
They enjoyed every step; squeezing, watching it drip and
then using different tools to move the paint and see it blend.
Occasionally you can still find a record player at the thrift stores but you could ask your families if anyone has one packed away that might like to donate. We’ll leave it out again tomorrow and see who ventures over.
