Today in the toddler room the children have been developing their gross motor skills by using the Lego cars to create pictures with different coloured paint.
We also made the most of the nice weather out in the garden, without the need for wellies and suits ,playing in the purple sand watching it sparkle in the sun.
Today the toddlers were getting creative making their own glittery works of art! They used glue to make a pattern on the paper and then added glitter to create sparkly pictures. We were delighted the sun came out which made the glitter very pretty and extra sparkly!
”Wow, look at my sparkly unicorn!”
Today in the toddler room the children were making sticky pictures with glue and different coloured shapes. This gave them the opportunity to explore different shapes and discuss how many sides each shape has. The children were thinking about what they could use the shapes for in their pictures and of course enjoyed getting sticky fingers from the glue!
”Mine has a big funny nose!”
”Mind has small legs!”
Today the toddlers were excited to finish creating their very own cherry blossom tree, just like the one in our garden. They had some sensory fun with bubble wrap before dipping it in pink paint and printing with it onto our tree! This made fantastic blossoms on top of our hand painted leaves! Take a look below at our finished tree! Everyone was very proud!
”Wow, it’s bigger than me!!”
Today in the toddler room the children were making the most of the good weather and having sensory play in the garden. One of their favourite activities is playing in the bubbles with kitchen utensils. We added different colours to the water and looked for rainbows in the bubbles.
“Look at all the pretty colours!”
Today in the toddler room Spring was in the air! The children were using forks dipped in paint to print lovely tulips on to coloured paper. They were then using paint brushes to paint stems onto their pretty flowers. This created a good discussion about Spring and what flowers appear at this time of year. The children also enjoyed the novelty of painting with forks!!
Today the children in the toddler room were busy in the garden planting sunflower seeds. We were discussing what might happen to the seeds when they are watered and the heat from the sunshine beats down on them. The children loved the feeling of the soil in their hands.
“It feels all cold and messy!”
The children then designed their own plant pots with colourful sparkles!
