Packing Peanuts Activity Tray

Materials needed
1 bowl (plus an endless supply of extras) packing peanuts*
1 small sponge on a tray
1 small cup or bowl to transfer water from the sink to the sponge when the sponge dries out

*must be the kind that melt when wet

The children made some pretty cool sculptures with the peanuts, including vehicles, headgear, letters, animals, and people, but since we're all about the "process" and not the "product", let's focus on this next picture... 

I loved watching them sit around at chat while they waited for a turn.  
What a beautiful group of children.

It reminds me of one of the best quotes I have ever read 
(and I just read it yesterday) 
You have to go to school
so you can love people you didn't know before.

Ain't that the TRUTH???
