This week the Babies and staff at Kings Norton have started getting in the festive spirit and messy with Christmas crafts.
Let’s make snowmen!
Using potatoes, we helped the children to move them around in paints and glitter and encouraged to make marks. The Babies absolutely loved getting messy and enjoyed getting the paint all over the paper and their hands! They laughed and smiled as a member of staff said, “Bop!” printing the potato down and the children tried to imitate her actions.
