The scientific concept of classification is fun to explore with preschoolers!
Today's Topic: Sorting (or Classification)
sets of things you have on hand (I used buttons, bottle caps, puppets, blocks, foam letters, some dyed noodles I had from a past project, magnetic wooden shapes)
containers to sort them into (I used ice cube trays, egg cartons, and buckets)

Art Project: Sticky Finger Painting
sweetened condensed milk
heavy paper or lightweight cardboard sheets
spoons to stir
cotton swabs for the texture averse
Clear hair gel (optional, for milk-allergies)
Although this project has nothing to do with animals, I explained that Eric Carle's style incorporated a lot of texture that the kids might be able to mimic when trying out fingerpaints.
Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see? / Martin, Bill
