Good afternoon everyone,
Did any of you make a crown like Max today? We would love to see your pictures, so please do send them in. A well as sharing on the blog, we will print out the pictures and put them in your child’s special book.
Today in nursery children made binoculars, this is something you can easily do at home using two cardboard tubes. Cut them to size and tape together, although these obviously don’t magnify, children love them and in nursery children played happily in the garden spotting and identifying birds.
Other children made Max’s boat today, you really only need a big cardboard box for this. Children love to play with boxes so don’t throw the big ones away. An empty cardboard box can be anything your child wants it to be. Children love hiding places and clambering in and out of spaces, so a box they can fit inside is an ideal space for play. By its very nature, cardboard is neutral, and so a welcome contrast to so many toys with their jarring colours, flashing lights and repetitive noises. But most importantly, a cardboard box offers a blank slate for their creativity.
If you click on the link below you can listen to the wonderful story “Not a Box” by Antoinette Portis.
On the blog today we have Alison singing and signing Baa Baa Black Sheep and Shazna singing some favourite nursery songs.
So tomorrow you can listen to “Not a Box”, make a boat, make binoculars and sing familiar songs rhymes. Plenty of activities to keep our youngest children busy.
Have a good evening.
