::: a place to just go for it!
We have always found the invention table to be one of the most popular areas in the room, except perhaps for the snack table!
It is wonderful early on in the year when the children are exploring the kinder, you and themselves. They can just go for it!
We like to have plenty of supplies such as drawing, sticking and cutting implements …
along with loads of paper, card and envelopes.
Tubs of stuff they can access themselves such as recycled goodies, straws, pop sticks, boxes (we tend to save all our boxes from home during the break to give us a head start), pipe cleaners etc.
Sometimes their creations go home and other times they are just recycled back – they are often not so fussed at this stage about the finished product.
