Despite everything there, I noticed that Alfie, specifically, was very attracted to ‘slopes’ and ‘ramps’….

There was a lot of experimenting with the above….deciding which was the easiest to run up and which was the most difficult…
…and the more physical..

…and the smaller ones to experiment with, and wonder about….

The day after, we went sledging, and we talked about who went the longest, who went the fastest, and why he thought that was the case.

This week, I took out the marble run…

…plus bringing in the little slide from outside, to test with balls, and assorted things that roll..

So far it’s been Ted experimenting, as Alfie has typically been busy with school and friends – but I’m going to try to get him more involved this week with some other ‘ramp’ type experiments if he’s still interested.. 😉
