Firstly, I have to apologise for the fact that this post did not go out on Friday. I was away and unfortunately, I had very weak/erratic internet service.
Last week was school holidays which meant that I had all 4 of my children home with me. I love it!
It does mean, that my photos are a little busier than usual. We were just so busy doing so many different things for different interests on each day. So I decided that the post needs to be a 'round-up' of what we did.
We played with water and paint brushes... the best kind of mark making. Large and satisfying, when the walls and floors are your canvas.
We added shells to the water too. They are fun to wash.
The children remembered an almost forgotten resource, tiny little Teifoc bricks. These are mini real bricks. They can be re used after washing away the special 'cement'.
On Friday we used shop bought modelling dough and loose parts. The loose parts included lolly sticks, craft match sticks, buttons and googly eyes.
Little Miss 4 was totally absorbed in this activity. She made a number of little creatures. ( Even though the dough was too crumbly and not very satisfying).
Little Miss 2 on the other hand preferred exploring with the loose parts.
She spent a while trying to line up the googly eyes.
This activity was great for small motor development.
Thank you for stopping by. See you all for more sensory play on Friday.
