It was 94 degrees here today ~ a record high. Jack stayed cool this afternoon by playing outside with his water mat (thank you Cousin Rose & Kimberlee!). Grace & I added lots of cool water to Jack's mat. I also added some marbles to the mat in order to increase the tactile/sensory input for Jack as he was playing. Grace added some silver glitter to the water too (she couldn't resist!). Jack loves his water mat. This was a great sensory activity for Jack and the perfect way for him to keep cool on this very hot day.
