Winter mark making!
In the Baby room we have been having a great time using our white board pens to make marks on the shiny foil. The Babies chose their favourite coloured pens then holding them in a palmars grasp, were able to make big, little, straight and curly marks! We also used our fingers to wipe the marks off and start again.
The Babies were fascinated with the rustling noise, how the foil catches the light and really enjoyed helping rip the foil off when we were all finished!
