If there’s one (or three!) things my mindees always love it’s glitter, glue and sequins! With this activity they were able to indulge their love of all three. We have done these fantastic cardboard wreaths before but this time they were star shaped!
This time round it was turn of two 2 year olds I look after. Didn’t they do well?!
Continuing our look back at 2018, the start of the Summer Holidays saw us enjoying these fab Bug Colour-In Crowns.
The children aged 3 and 4 loved making these fun Jellyfish plates today with a kit from my favourite arts and crafts suppliers Baker Ross. Aren’t they great?!
The children all loved colouring in a Father’s days card for their Dads this week. We used these trophy cards from Baker Ross. Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!
Yesterday, Sunday 3rd June, saw Oxfordshire play host to the ‘World Pooh Sticks Championships’.
As all Winnie the Pooh fans will know, Pooh Sticks is the game of dropping twigs into a stream from the bridge above and seeing whose stick emerges first from the other side.
Here at Aston Childcare we love an impromptu game of pooh sticks! The children’s excitement of watching their floating twig arrive safely at the other side of the bridge never fails to amuse.
It’s a game we probably all remember fondly from our own childhoods. There really is nothing simpler than throwing a stick in the water that the children love so much! No childhood is complete without a game of PoohSticks!
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”!
Lovely handprints of two 2.5 year old toddlers I look after…
I may have to re-think our use of glitter after reading this story in the news today! –
