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.

Ooh arr!

The children all enjoyed some pirate themed arts and crafts last week.

They all enjoyed colouring in their own pirate ships, using some fun Pirate foam stickers and perhaps their favourite of all, decorating their very own Pirate swords!

The children (aged 2.5-4 years old) had great fun extending their vocabulary and learning lots of new words such as treasure, sails, mast and plank whilst the eldest of the group (aged 5) was able to teach them new phrases such as “x marks the spot”!
