Today the children enjoyed lots of activities together. They had so much fun laughing, talking and playing.
The kitchen area was a hit for Isabelle and Emily, they played nicely together, making toast and brekkie. They also made a cake and sang happy birthday. Henry and Charlie also played in the kitchen together cooking lots of food.
The children enjoyed some puzzle’s with Thomas, the children are getting very good at completing 9 and 16 piece’s.
Playdough with Dinosaurs where a big hit also. The children used the dino’s to make prints in the dough. they also manipulated the different materials such as the roller to make the dough flat. They made many shapes, round balls and used them to roll to each other at the table.
With Donna the children enjoyed some water play again today. Sensory play has many benefits, it especially encourages motor skills. They used the syringes to soak the water up and then squirt it back out, it also encourages scientific thinking and problem solving. Leonardo and Isabella Hau especially enjoyed this play and sat for at least a half hour using the syringe.
With Liza the children continue to learn the safety of the road. They become vehicles and driving around the road. But they must watch for the lights and stop when its red and go when it turns green. The children also really are enjoying this activity and playing for over an hour.
Nelson set up a coordinating game, the children had to use their skills to hit the cones from the slide with the ball.
What a fun sunny day we had at Aqua today.
