Bubble, bubble, bubble, POP

What a beautiful sunny week it’s been here in our Cart Mill garden. The children have been so busy all week. We have been taking part in a wide range of learning experiences, such as arts and crafts, throwing and catching games, science experiments and singing and performing shows on our very on stage. But we saved the best for  last.  BUBBLE PAINTING.

The children mixed paint with the bubble mixture and dipped in the bubble wand. Then it was time to blow the mixture and create unique, one of a kind masterpieces.

It was so much fun seeing the different patterns we made by blowing the paint through the various shapes wands.

We talked about the marks they made when the water droplets landed on the paper and what happened when we the colours began to mix on the paper, resulting in a tie-dye effect.

It was so much fun making our arts and craft science experiments in our sunny garden. I wonder what we can create next.

Have a lovely weekend everyone can’t wait to hear all about it when you come back next week.

Toddlers learn Colours


The children in the toddler room have been showing an awareness and interest in colours recently.

There has been a variety of experiences happening across the week in the toddler room that have helped the children recognise different colours.

The children chose their favourite colours and worked well together to make a lovely stained glass window for our room.

The children enjoyed playing with our 3D bead maze developing their knowledge of the different colours and enhancing their fine motor skills and control.
