The toddlers have been excited watching the snow showers and discovering how cold the ice and snow is to touch. The toddlers have spent time making their own snowflake pictures using different materials to paint with. The children used paint brushes,sponge dappers and kitchen brushes to make different patterns in their snowflakes. They have also been practising their fine motor skills using scissors to cut out their snowflakes
Today the toddlers were celebrating Pancake Tuesday! They were all very involved in helping to make our egg free pancakes! After hand washing the children helped to weigh and mix the ingredients in a bowl. They all had a turn at stirring the mixture. We then all went to the family room to see the mixture turn into pancakes. The children beautifully sang ‘Pop a Little Pancake’ whilst waiting. The pancakes smelled yummy!! Once back in the playroom the children crushed strawberries to make jam and spread it on their own pancake. We had banana on top too! What a tasty snack! The toddlers gave a big thumbs up to eating fresh pancakes!
What a great feeling to get back out into the forest today, especially as the sun was shining. After all the rain, the forest was alive with new growth.
The children spent the morning exploring our new site and the verdict is – “it’s really good” and “I want to live here!”. Now, where can we pitch the tents?
