The dragon in our Chinese New Year celebrations last week sparked some new play activities for us this week. Here are some of the things we enjoyed…
Tracing Line Designs
…with loose metal parts…
… and other pictures with shapes…
Castle Small World
A very popular area – they want this to stay out next week too…
This is how some of the children left it one morning. I loved the addition of the trees and coconut houses…
Laminated Shapes on the OHP
Dragons and other pictures…
Building Small-Scale Castles
The mirrors add a different dimension..
… on the light panel (simple drawings on acetate sheets)…
Soap flakes and food colouring. Very slimy, very bubbly and lots of fun!
Playing with Dough
Creating dragons and other creatures with loose parts. We used old dough at the end of last week when I introduced it, but had fresh marbled dough at the beginning of this week…
I love ‘catching’ them doing this! Sorry, I forgot to take a photo of the collection of books we used, hopefully you can see some of them in the photos of the areas.
Tap A Shape Dragons
… and other creatures…
Always so popular!
(Through the cheap drainer mats I’ve shared before.)
Counting Out Jewels for the Crown
(Tray from TTS)
… for the Queen, of course!
Always lots of independent painting, but I loved this ‘dragon’s cave’…
Thanks for reading and happy Half Term, if you’ve finished. Another week to go for us…
Would love you to come & say hello! 🙂
