    Finger paint, play with homemade slime and glurch, splash in water, and make a big mess AT SCHOOL! Children learn important concepts through sensory play such as empty, full, heavy, light, rough, smooth, wet, dry, and other comparisons. Shared with a parent, such play becomes an opportunity for language development and simple science. Dress for a mess and come prepared to have fun! Teacher: EC Staff
