Story stones. I know, I know, it's all very Waldorf (not that there's anything wrong with Waldorf), (except for the craziness ahem) but how frakkin' cute are these? And what a great way to encourage oral language development in ELLs!

kids clapping games; the oldies are all here! --can't have little girls and not know these. :)

Takes some effort to mix the water and cornstarch. This defies Newton’s third law of motion–for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
