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!!”
