Swords

I’ve done this before – an oldie but a goodie… posting ‘swords’ (matchsticks’) through the holes. Can they beat the timer?

    I loved the counting keys activities. Where did you get the keys please?

  2. Ok – how can I “think” like this?!?! This is so creative – I feel like I missed a fun opportunity to celebrate the Royal Wedding!

    • Ah, thank you!
      I think the more you work like this, the more it comes naturally. There’s lots of inspiration online, if you’re not sure where to start. The Instagram early years community are amazing! 🙂
