The Selaron Steps
My preschooler loves a building challenge, particularly one that leads into messy play. We read about the Selaron Steps in ‘Let’s Visit Rio de Janeiro’ – see my post on books for Brazil week. So I thought we could make them out of sugar cubes and colour them with food colouring. I got my son to think about how to build the steps and we talked about the construction. He then coloured them…and of course ended up dissolving all the sugar into a colourful mess. But he loves using the pipettes and it’s good for those motor skills so why not?!
