The babies have enjoyed exploring paint to celebrate the Spring Lantern Festival
In the baby room we have been decorating lanterns to celebrate The Spring Lantern Festival. This is a Chinese festival to mark the last day of the new year celebrations. The babies decorated paper using red, orange and yellow paints. They used different mark making tools and also their hands to decorate their lanterns, adding glitter for that extra special sparkle! The babies also explored the texture of the paint, moving their hands around in it and squeezing it between their fingers
