while it lasted..

While observing in a preschool classroom I observed this:

Teacher: (turns lights off and then on again) "Kids, it's time to clean up."

The kids move throughout the classroom picking up and putting toys away.  A small group gathers around the sensory table.  Inside the sensory table was a large amount of play foam.  The small group of students collectively start playing with the foam, pressing large pieces of it onto their shirts and exclaiming, "Look and my sticker!"  The teacher approached the sensory table, and states, "It looks like you are playing and not cleaning."  The kids scatter and as one student is running away from the table he exclaims... "Well that was fun while it lasted!"
