There were some very excited children in the centre today. As it was cold and frosty we thought it would be a good idea to light the fire and sing some Christmas songs around it, while drinking delicious hot chocolate.
We hope all the Cart Mill family have a wonderful and safe festive period.
Merry Christmas, and a very happy New Year from us all.
Thank you to all for the most generous gifts you have handed in for the staff, it is very much appreciated.
This week has been very busy for the boys and girls. We have all had great fun making Christmas decorations. We have painted our fire place for Santa. We decorated stars to take home and made reindeer dust for Christmas Eve. We have also had a special treat watching a Christmas movie and enjoyed some popcorn.
As you know we have been collecting toiletries and food for the East Renfrewshire Foodbank and we are quite overwhelmed at your generosity. They say Christmas is the time for giving and you truly have. Gail will be dropping all the goodies off tomorrow, just in time to make a difference to many families at Christmas.
Thank you ❤️🎄🎅🏼

Today in our garden we were exploring different Christmas experiences..
The children were using different materials to create some transient art Christmas trees, developing their fine motor skills by practicing Christmas words in the rice and exploring different sized and shaped pine cones and counting them out.
They selected different coloured materials to create decorations on their Christmas trees.
They also worked together to count out the different sized pine cones. Great teamwork!
D was able to copy the word ”Elf” by using his mark-making and fine motor skills to create the letters in the rice!
I wonder what other fun Christmas experiences we will explore throughout the week.
