Tubes, cars, and balls

Our toddlers had a blast using large tubes as a path for their cars and balls. They experimented using both. Watching to see how far they would roll and how fast they would go. Sarah and I extended their play by asking questions about what they were doing and what they thought would happen as they tried different things.
