1.4.20 - all foundation children

 

Can you design your own Easter egg?

Think about:

  • what colours you would like to use
  • what patterns you would like to draw on it - perhaps a repeating pattern?
  • what media/materials you would like to use - pens, coloured pencils, crayons, paint, perhaps making it out of play dough, using beads or pipe cleaners for the pattern?
  • what textures you are going to create - do you want to add feathers to make it fluffy, beads/rice/pasta to make it bumpy, paint to make it smooth?

 

Have fun with your creations!

31.3.20 - Fine Motor Development - DOUGH DISCO 

 

To take part in this fun activity you will need to make some playdough, and this is really easy to do.

Ingredients:

2 cups plain flour

1 cup salt

1 cup oil

1 cup cold water 

2 drops liquid food colouring


Method:

1. Mix the flour and salt together in a large mixing bowl.

2. Add the cold water, oil and drops of food colouring and mix together.

3. When your ingredients are well mixed, take them out of your bowl and place your dough onto a flat surface, such as greaseproof paper.

4. Knead vigorously for a few minutes, until your dough feels like playdough and all of the stickiness has gone.

 

Now its time to join the dough disco! 
Watch the video below. Enjoy!
