Turtle Power!

The children have loved decorating these fun turtles recently with buttons and glue giving them the opportunity to use and develop their fine motor skills. I love the results!


Terrific Tiaras!

Last week, the children were busy making these terrific tiaras! I adapted the activity slightly depending on their age which ranges from 18 months to 6 years old. They all loved the activity and wore their fantastic creations with pride!

Dinosaurs and Unicorns!

Before becoming a Childminder and a Mum 4 years ago, Dinosaurs and Unicorns never really featured in my life!.

These days however they seem to feature rather heavily(!) and are always a hit with the kids…

Dreaming of Spring!

With all that snow now (hopefully!) behind us, here at Aston Childcare our thoughts are turning to Spring!

To get us in the mood we’ve been colouring these pretty flower and butterfly templates. I love these activities where the very youngest in the setting (17 months old) and the eldest (6 years old) can get involved.
