Our children have had lots of fun developing their mark making skills this week!
We decided to use some shaving foam “because it was all fluffy and smelled nice” and the children collected lots of different materials to see what marks and pattens they could make.
We used some of the branches from our Christmas Tree, pine cones, lollipop sticks and our fingers to see the different marks each made.
The children thought the Christmas tree made the best marks.
We decided to add some “sparkles” and colour to our foam to see what would happen.
We had lots of fun swirling and mixing our foam and “it turned pink. It’s my favourite” Some of the children practised writing their names and numbers in the foam. The children thought the Christmas tree looked like “a strawberry ice cream”.
We had lots of fun drawing patterns on the ground and following them until we reached the end “X marks the spot!” Do you like our “colourful rainbow?”
We were so happy to see the snow in our garden. Our toddlers had so much fun mark making using their feet. Our dinosaurs came out to play too!
It’s been a busy couple of days in our garden and we have had so much fun using so many different materials to practise our marvellous mark making skills!
Why don’t you practise your marvellous mark making at home? We would love you to share them with us.
Take care and have lots of fun. Xx
