PlaySpace: Messy Sensory Activity Water Color
Tuesday, October 20, 2015 - 10:00am to 4:00pm





Water Color

See, and feel the paint. Make shapes with the watery liquid. Practice the fine motor skill of using a paint brush. Try using a sponge and use your whole arm to splash paint onto the paper.Describe the movements, and color of the watercolor markings.

In the Messy Sensory Area in PlaySpace, toddlers do the important work of exploring the world and themselves through hands-on activities. The area is perfect for toddlers to explore all kinds of sensory materials from paint to shaving cream, playdough and water. Activities are carefully designed to support toddlers curiosity and the development of fundamental skills. We use washable, non-toxic materials so everyone can enjoy the fun of making a mess!

Tips for doing Messy activities at Boston Children's Museum:

  • Follow your childs lead and feel free to visit the area multiple times. It could be your childs first time exploring paint or cornstarch. and it takes time to develop confidence and be comfortable.
  • We have smocks available for both children and grownups. Pack an extra shirt and pants for full-body exploration.
  • Talk to our experienced staff.We are available for tips and ideas to try at home.

The area may be closed briefly for cleaning in the middle of the day.

The Art of Negotiation: How to Improvise Agreement in a Chaotic World
The Art of Negotiation: How to Improvise Agreement in a Chaotic World Michael Wheeler HBS Professor of Management Practice, Retired Professor Wheeler presents a fresh and dynamic approach to negotiation, one that challenges the static assumptions of win-win and hard-bargaining models alike. The simple truth is that negotiation cant be scripted. People cant dictate what other parties will say or do any more than they would let others dominate them. Success thus requires strategic agility and the capacity to be nimble from moment to moment. Professor Wheeler draws practical lessons from masters of improvisation in other fields, including jazz, comedy, competitive sports, and even warfare. Author of eleven books, his most recent one is The Art of Negotiation: How to Improvise Agreement in a Chaotic World (Simon & Schuster). His iOS appNegotiation 360launched earlier this year. Professor Wheeler has taught Negotiation in Harvard Business Schools MBA program since 1993. He has also taught in a wide variety of executive courses, including Strategic Negotiation. In July 2015, he was named Editor Emeritus of the Negotiation Journal, having been its Editor the prior twenty years. In recent years he has also been a Visiting Professor at Harvard Law School and the Kennedy School of Government. Prior to coming to HBS, Wheeler taught at MITs Department of Urban Studies and Planning and was Professor of Law at New England Law. Wheeler holds degrees from Amherst College, Boston University, and Harvard Law School, and was admitted to the Massachusetts bar in 1969. He has been a panelist for the American Arbitration Association, and has served as a mediator or arbitrator in a variety of business and regulatory disputes. He has advised corporate clients, trade associations and government agencies on negotiation issues in the United States and abroad. Full bio. Join us for a fast moving and interactive evening with one of the nations foremost experts on negotiation.
