Bird Poop Splatter  2.0

You will need:

  • Story Book "Life Is Not Fair When You Are Just A Chair"

  • Plastic or Wooden chair

  • Shaving foam

  • Spoons

  • 3 Trays

  • 3 Hoops (one will work for a small group of children)

  • Hose

 

(This experience is an outdoor one, perhaps against a washable wall or a place that can be hosed down afterwards)

What to do

Step 1:

Set up activity with a chair outside with 3 hoops at the same distance

 

Step 2:

Spray shaving foam into trays and add spoons

 

Step 3:

Read the story "Life Is Not Fair When You Are Just a Chair". Draw the children's attention to the part of the story where the chair gets pooped on by birds.

 

Step 4:

Demonstrate how to pick up blobs of shaving foam and flick it at the chair while standing in a hoop (younger ones by find this difficult, so throwing will hands works just as well and still requires hand-eye co-ordination)

 

Step 5:

Gradually make it harder by moving the hoops further away from the chair

 

Step 6:

Hose off shaving foam (the children may want to "wash the chair" with the shaving foam beforehand)
