With the weather still so cold and the children showing an interest in the snow and ice, we have enjoyed a Winter Week. The Pretoddlers explored ‘sticky’ snow (fluffy shaving foam mixed with oats), and discovered what was frozen inside coloured blocks of ice!
The children absolutely love getting their hands messy, exploring new textures and making marks, learning by doing every day.
