Today the toddlers chose their favourite colours of paint to put in the bags. We then closed the bags and the children used their hands to press on the paint “this felt very squishy “. The children discovered they could then draw shapes and patterns on the bags. The paint also mixed together and made different colours.
Today in the toddler room the children were making the most of the good weather and having sensory play in the garden. One of their favourite activities is playing in the bubbles with kitchen utensils. We added different colours to the water and looked for rainbows in the bubbles.
“Look at all the pretty colours!”
Today we explored some materials we found outdoors and the children wanted to make a sensory walkway. The children were developing the sense of touch through using their feet and using a variety of descriptive vocabulary to explain how it felt on their feet.
“The stones are hard on my feet” said Amber.
“The grass is tickly”. said Jack
“The sand is so soft” said James.
We had lots of fun!
