Stay and Play – Balloon Modelling!


We were very lucky on Monday to have a special Stay-and-Play guest in the nursery. Alden, Jacob’s Daddy, visited and taught us all about balloon modelling. Alden spent nearly the whole morning entertaining our children and demonstrating balloon modelling techniques. The children were fascinated and there were many ‘WOW’ moments as we watched the balloons twisting and turning into dinosaurs, birds, giraffes, monkeys, dogs and much more! Thank you so much to Alden and Jacob for sharing this talent with us in nursery. We loved it! The children have been talking about the balloons all week. The session has sparked some exciting imaginative play and we have been busy drawing lovely pictures of our new pets!

“Look Alden, I am good at it!”

“ANOTHER dinosaur?!”

“Look at the pink dog! I am going to take him home to play in my house.”

“I carry the sword in this. I am like a pirate. I am going to wear it home.”

“I made a dinosaur. Look at his long neck. He walks over here…..ROAR!”

“The balloons sometimes go POP, but that is okay. We get a new one instead.”

“This is a cheeky monkey climbing a tree. He is going to climb on my head.”
