Merry Christmas everyone.  We had lots of fun on our last session of 2023. We played with balloons, alongside making Christmas collages, dressing up as Santa and filling his sack, dancing the ‘Christmas freeze with Danny Go ‘ and climbing up Santas chimney to go down the slide!

Well what a wonderful wintery morning we had at stay and play today. We experienced touching real snow in the arctic tuft spot and exploring with the animals. Some children chose to make a winter scene picture using leaves, glitter paint, cotton wool  and tissue paper whilst others chose to have a Christmas photo opportunity next to our lovely Christmas tree. We finished the session by singing Christmas songs ready for the festive season. 

Children in Need 

Today we had fun putting spots on  Pusey bears eyepatch using paint dobbers and playing teddy bears picnic. Lots of children had fun making pudsey with the yellow play dough and exploring the different areas within the hall.

Our Owl handprints were so much fun especially when we got to paint our hands to make the print. The edible farm was very popular; I think it may have been the hot chocolate powder that was used for the muddy pig area. 

 

This week our Stay & Play was Dinosaur themed. We had lots of  fun making play dough dinosaurs, hunting for dinosaurs, painting dinosaurs, reading/singing about dinosaurs. We even became Palaeontologist when searching for dinosaur fossils in the Jurassic tuft spot. We hope to see you all next week.
