Autumn has arrived and the Pre-Toddler’s have been busy enjoying and exploring the outdoor area.
There are lots of conkers falling from the trees and the children could not wait to investigate the feel and textures of the conkers shell, whilst looking at the colour and smoothness of the conkers inside. Next they used what they had seen to get creative, making their very own Autumn trees with paints. The Pre-toddlers loved using Autumnal colours such as oranges and reds, which with their handprints and brushes created the leaves of the trees.
