The Babies have enjoyed doing lots of wonderful winter activities! We put the penguins in the flour and glitter, the babies made them stomp and used their fingers to feel the flour and make lots of different marks and they even now recognise and have tried to say the word, “Penguin!”.
They then enjoyed our winter ice cube play with paint and glitter, feeling the cold ice cubes, they were very slippery! The ice cubes melted after lots of play, making the paint mix together, it was very messy!
