Wishy washy, wishy washy wash those dirty animals.... This week we are focusing on farm animals. We have explored Mrs Wishy Washy books and we are singing 'Old MacDonald Had a Farm'. We all cleaned the animals as they got into the mud!
This little man normally likes to observe painting activities. Today we decorated harvest boxes and you came over and picked up a paint brush. You then made lots of lovely marks and then started to make your own choices of what colours you wanted. Independently you poured the paint into a tray. You then explored the paint further and decided to make handprints too.
Making marks with cars...
Shaving foam AND paint! We added paint to the shaving foam this week to explore mxing colours.
"I'm building a house" Wow, what wonderful work! You built a house for your tractor to sleep in. You thought carefully about what was needed. You had a floor, 4 walls and a roof.
Shaving foam fun! The children loved this sensory activity.... they explored the texture and watched the marks they made. One little man liked to watch the shavng foam float down to the floor. We will continue to explore different sensory activities.
Exploring paint... the children have really enjoyed printing with different materials, especially their hands! The children demonstrated wonderful concentration and remained on task for a long period of time. Fantastic!
