Jumbo Pippettes

The latest addition to our resources was some jumbo eyedroppers, large colourful pipettes that I thought would be great for the children's developing coordination and fine motor skills.

To gain the children's interest I provided some bicarbonate of soda with some drops of food colouring in them along with a pot of vinegar and they could not wait to get started. They were fascinated by the immediate reaction of the powder and began commenting on both the fizzing noise and the colours. 

The use of the muffin tray proved fascinating for the children also as they began to move their coloured liquids from one compartment to the other. 

These pipettes were a huge success with all ages and we shall definitely be looking out for more ways to make use of them soon.
