We all wore our RED shirts too. It was great. Even the littlest ones had on RED. (I did too, for about 40 minutes. Then I got pooped on, oh well, a day in the life of a Child Care Provider)
We also did a crayon melting activity on the Hot Plate. I saw it on Annie's blog, but for the life of me I can't find the post for it. We love it and haven't done it in a real long time.
We used just RED today, but we will addmore colors as the week goes on. It wasa favorite today. I think we have about 100 melted crayon prints. We learned to keep our hands and arms away from the sides and bottom of the Hot Plate. They did a lot of experimenting on how far they could get the crayon to melt before it got to hot for them.
