This play provocation is themed around adhesives. Painter’s tape and Post-It Notes are cheap and harmless, and children absolutely love them!
We included straws, markers and paper clips with the different types of tape and Post-Its.
Here’s a play provocation that we made using wood in different forms.
This has cardboard, wood pieces, bark mulch, wooden balls, Popsicle sticks and clothespins in coconut shells.
For this play provocation we put together a disco ball (from Dollarama), mini flashlights (also from Dollarama), glittery foams, toilet paper rolls and shapes cut from translucent plastic file folders.
Lots of shiny things to make sparkle!
