This is great for mark making and lovely outdoor play on a hot day! So simple, no clean up! Fill up a trug with water, add mops, brushes, brooms, sponges, spray bottles. Sit back while your children play. Dipping their tools in and making marks all over the garden/pavement/shed. :)
Opportunities to write in every area of the classroom. It is so important that those children who never choose to enter the mark making areas are receiving the same chances in other areas of their play.
