Festive and winter fun has begun in the toddler room. We have decorated our tree. The toddlers enjoyed using red and green paint to print with potatoes these made lovely baubles to hang up in the room. We also enjoyed making reindeer dust which we are having great fun with in our sensory tray. Everything is beginning to sparkle!
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 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 the toddlers have enjoyed using their hands to make leaf shapes for their tree using green paint. After allowing this to dry the afternoon children added on the tree trunk. Tomorrow we are excited to add some cherry blossoms and it will look like the trees near our centre.
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!!
Every gingerbread man needs a gingerbread house!!
Today the toddlers made a start on creating their own gingerbread houses! They helped to make boxes into the shape of houses and had fun getting messy painting them brown like gingerbread! Once they are dry the children are looking forward to decorating the houses with their own choice of art and craft materials!
“Our house needs windows and curtains!”.
The toddlers had a great time in the garden this week. The rain did not stop them!! They made their own characters out of potatoes, painting them and decorating them with different materials. Some of the children used feathers to give their potatoes wings or superhero capes!! They were very proud of their unique creations and had fun chatting about what they were called.
“Mine is called Super Angel Girl!!”
