The natural attraction that children have with water makes it perfect for children to explore. Water gives the children options of splashing, pouring and mixing. At the same time the children enhance their cognitive development as they begin to explore things like why certain objects sink or float and adding water to other mediums such as sand allows for easier building and more.
The Water Play template is for a child's portfolio and consists of a typical interest area that you may have setup in your service setting. It enables you to add 3 images of the child playing in the specific area as well as a description to accommodate the photos. It also has the benefits the child gains through playing within the interest area as well as a tick box to Link to the Curriculum (Outcomes, Principles and Practices). The template also features a colour theme and clip art images for that particular interest area.
This template is great to add to a Portfolio to help Parents understand how playing with water benefits a child. It includes:
- 3 images boxes
- Description box
- Check boxes for Outcomes, Principles and Practices
