Today the toddlers were visiting the big ones garden. They were all very excited and got to try lots of new experiences. The obstacle course was a big hit The children showed confidence climbing up the crates ,jumping off and then making their way through the tyres.
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.
The toddlers have been having great fun searching for bugs in the garden and today they chose to make their own ladybirds using egg boxes,paint,pipe cleaners and stick on eyes.
“They have red bodies and black spots and can fly onto the plants.” “That’s where we found them.”
The children were exploring different magnetic resources and what they stuck to.
We have discovered our wall is magnetic!
We also discovered we could collect the nuts and bolts using magnetic force!
Today in the toddler room the children were making sticky pictures with glue and different coloured shapes. This gave them the opportunity to explore different shapes and discuss how many sides each shape has. The children were thinking about what they could use the shapes for in their pictures and of course enjoyed getting sticky fingers from the glue!
”Mine has a big funny nose!”
”Mind has small legs!”
Today in the toddler room we had fun making shortbread, waiting patiently for our turn to weigh, measure and mix the ingredients together.
We pressed down on the the dough and used a square and circle cookie cutter to make shapes, before we put them in the oven to bake yum yum.
Today the toddlers have created a home for dinosaurs.
They chose grass and sand for the dinosaurs to make foot prints in.
We thought pasta,pine cones,twigs and water would be good for the dinosaurs to eat and drink.
The children thought some of the dinosaurs were very big and scary when they roared …..
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!!”
