Valentine’s and Outdoor play

We love role play in Nursery and like to pretend we are Elsa and Anna from Frozen, who can freeze things.  We froze hearts and explored different ways to melt or break them to find what was inside…..

………Some of us preferred using warm water in syringes and droppers to melt holes in the hearts.

….some of us preferred using tools to break the ice instead

But when the ice melted – it was even more fun!……

 

….floating petals to make patterns

 

 

 

 

 

….sucking and squirting water with syringes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…..making perfume and love potions

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Squirting water made everything wet inside, so there was nothing for it but to go outside for a WATER FIGHT!  Which was EVEN MORE FUN!……

It was a good job we had waterproofs on.  We  drew pictures with the water – it was hard to control it sometimes.  We did lots of target practice and the bairns drew their own targets to practice on when we were all too wet.  Some bairns squirted water to wash the windows.  Mrs Bishop said we could wash her car if we wanted…….SO WE DID……………….

We must have done a good job as Mrs Bishop sent us a Thank You card for all our hard work!
