Pump it up!

pitcher pump water table

Did I write about the pump table yet?  Our center has been working on an outdoor classroom – making the environment much more natural.  We have trees and plants now and other wonderful things.  I wanted to have a water table with a working pump, and initially it worked wonderfully!  We had some great large-motor development from the toddlers up to the school-age children.

Until.

*sigh*  I’ve been on vacation for a while, and during that time the pump stopped working.  Today I took it apart to see that the inside was CLOGGED with sand. It’s cleaned out now and moved to a spot further from the sandbox, but don’t forget that children treat things a bit rougher than you expect.  (I thought this would be pretty indesructable.  Shows what I know.)
