We continued our Space theme this week in Toddler 1, making shiny moon boots and going on a moon walk in the garden. We fashioned crazy alien hats and made colourful pictures of funny aliens. We enjoyed reading the story Aliens Love Underpants and exploring the tuff tray.
We have also been practising our pencil tripod grip and enjoying lots of sensory activities with play dough, sand, paint and silky dough. (The recipe is simple if you’d like to make silky dough at home… Just mix 2 cups of cornflour with 1 cup of hair conditioner et voila!)
