One of our Independent Childminder Facebook group members, after listening to the webinar and being inspired, has come up with an excellent way to teach children about cause and effect while still being true to her ‘no batteries’ ethos –
Our member has also bought some musical bells which can be used to make music and copy rhythms.
Other technology without batteries I mentioned during the webinar includes – wind up torches, old phones and keyboards for role play and a cash register with pretend money (be aware of choking hazards).
Thank you for sharing Jacqueline
