Den building is an essential part of a child’s development. Draping netting and material over and around different sized/shaped objects gave the children a sense of enclosure, and when inside pretended the world outside was a very different one, where dinosaurs, monsters and werewolves roam!
Looking for insects on Wednesday morning encouraged the children to use their observation skills, and gave them a chance to get hands on with nature. Thursday afternoon they were fascinated when a butterfly decided to entertain us in the garden as it flew around visiting all the flowers.
Later on the children used tweezers and tried to ‘rescue the insects trapped in the spiders web’.
We finished our week with bubbles. Thank you Eliza for brining in your bubble machine. Who doesn’t like bubbles?
