Science Center TV. Add brightly colored toy fish, ocean puzzles, fishing pole kits, fish print coloring pages and stamp sets for a fantastic week long theme.

1. Calming music for the high strung.

2. Beautiful scenery for the visually stimulated.

3. Places I can never take them on field trips with wildlife I cannot adequately describe with words alone.

4. TV is on but used in a different way.

5. Later tape a photo of an aquarium scene over the tv when not is use, play music as usual.


What are your ideas??

One of these:

and some window markers. They can make their own shows to watch.

Cool idea Unregistered.

Maybe even gut it and add shelves/storage inside for dress up and mirrors on the sides for acting out their own scenes?

Would the glass be shatter resistant, though? They'd get me on that for sure... How would you replace it if not?

That has me thinking a bit... (I found one they turned into a dog bed)

how about plexiglass instead of the tube?

or a felt board?

dry erase board?

empty and cut out back - they could climb inside and put on own show

Shatter resistant mirror?

Ok, I must remember to steal the one in the basement at my parents the next time I visit.
