Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick 🎶 When I saw @teach.investigate.play (superstar judge for #the12weeksofwinter by the way 👍) do this last week, I knew we’d be trying for the #nov_playalong. It was a roaring success in that M sang the song perfectly unaided at least eight times (I lost count) and it was an excellent #finemotorskills workout to open and accurately stick the plasters. Perhaps too much of a workout, because she only managed two before losing interest!

Invitation to Create Van Goghs Starry Night// Van Gogh’s work has a certain child-like simplicity to it, especially in the use of bold colors. A child is bound to be interested in the details in his pictures and this is a great learning opportunity for him too. Exposing artists of the world helps them develop a sense of culture and become aware of the beauty in the different styles and techniques in art. Loose parts simply means moveable materials that children can use in their play. It provides daily inspiration, endless possibilities, a chance to think, and encouragement to be creative. This is not only talking about creative play from an artistic point of view – although loose parts do provide great materials to sculpt and build – but creative play that encourages brain development, scientific experimenting, mathematical thought, risk taking, and trial and error learning. Through this kind of free play children are really creating: using what they have and what they already know, and combining that to create a whole that’s greater than the parts. Loose parts and free play in childhood develops the creative genius of the future. Combing loose parts and the light table from @discountschoolsupply by @guidecraft_official it became an even more excellent resource for science and discovery. The light table is an excellent source of visual sensory input. Children are naturally drawn to the glow of the table and are often calmed by the visual stimulation as they explore a the center. #preschool #ilovealameda #alamedaca #earlylearning101 #thekidsplay #bestofalameda #sensoryplay #smartlittlestars #tactileplay #ctinquiry #powerofplay52 #powerofplay #earlychildhoodeducation #earlylearning #getcreativewith #childcareadventures #loosepartsplay #lighttable #lighttableplay #looseparts #loosepartsplay

NOT INSTA PERFECT . I cant actually be bothered to try and get a picture so it looks pretty on Instagram but I do want to share it! . One of my children in particular is going to ADORE this tomorrow and Im so looking forward to observing her play! Theres a magical story behind it too which I just have to share as Im so overwhelmed! . A girl I used to go to primary school with got in touch with me last night on here to say she had some toys she no longer wants and would we be interested! When she told me what they were I was so shocked she just wanted to give us them !! . Of course I said yes and today whilst I was out she dropped them off in my garden in about 6 big bin bags and the kids have had a field day after school opening all our new presents! . Kindness means the world to me and Im just planning what act of kindness I can do in return! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts @liviia_hale_ Im really, really grateful. What a truly lovely thing to do ❤️ . . . #childcareadventures #kindness #spreadkindness #throwkindnesslikeconfetti #randomactsofkindness #dosomethingniceinnovember

CHILD LED PLAY 🧒 We spend the majority of our time outside here, the children just love being outdoors 🍃 🍂 Today we had our water table out and I found loads of syringes and pipettes for them to use. They then used brushes and syringes to squirt onto the fence and made pictures from the water of spider webs and monsters. We then had competitions of who could squirt the highest and I added foam numbers on to the fence for them to then aim at 😀 The children then found mud in the grass so they mixed mud with a stick and added lavender which was the flour and sugar to make mud cupcakes! 😀😀. With it being #nurseryrhymeweek the water spider web tied in nicely with Incy Windy Spider 🕷 we had been focusing on today. I love being outside as I find children become so much more free and really take on a fantastic role in their play. Happy Wednesday everyone! #childcareadventures #childminder #childminderuk #outside #nature #garden #eyfs #waterplay #imagination #preschoolers #toddlers #water #maths #numbers #childled #wednesday

Our writing tray today in sea blue and exploring alliteration with the letter S 🌊⛵ The children enjoyed using the paintbrushes to make marks and thought of lots of words beginning with S which we inserted into todays nursery rhyme, for example a sausage went to sea sea sea and so on 😄 Weve also been looking at our mouths and tongues in handheld mirrors to see what we look like when making the S sound and using our hands to feel the air coming out of our mouths through our teeth. . . . . . #rhymeweek #worldnurseryrhymeweek #nurseryrhymes #asailorwenttosea #writingtray #markmaking #earlyliteracy #phonics #phonicsfun #earlyyearsideas #eyfs #nov_playalong #childminder #childmindingfun #childcareadventures

• Frozen Waterbeads • ☃️ one of our staple sensory play materials...waterbeads! 😆 Callum loves these tiny mysterious bubbles and I love finding different ways in which we could use them in play 🤔💭 . . . ❄️ Freezing waterbeads is a fun way to offer a cool sensory experience that can easily become a fun STEM activity. I froze the beads overnight in a silicone mini loaves baking sheet and they were ready to be explored by morning 🌤 I threw them into a bin filled with coloured water, as well as added some fine motor tools to the mix. We played and played until the all the clumps melted 💦 . . . ⭐️ For a taste-safe experience, tapioca bubbles may be substituted for waterbeads. They do not freeze well but you can pop them into the fridge a couple hours prior to play and pair with some ice cubes for a cool sensory experience ☃️ . . . #exploreplaylearn #sensory #earlylearning #invitationtoplay #teachablemoments #toddlerplay #sensorylearning #sensoryplay #learningthroughplay #playmatters #letthemplay #handsonlearning #creativelearning #creativeplay #everydayplayhacks #earlyyears #dailyparenting #momlife #momsofinstagram #momsofig #childcareadventures #preschoolteacher #teachermom #toddlerlife #toddlersofig #earlylearning101 #earlychildhoodeducation #getcreativewith

• L E T S P L A Y A TO Z • What better to do on a cold Autumn morning then bake fresh chocolate cupcakes. Everyone loved this activity and got involved accordingly to ability with older mindees ensuring everyone washed their hands before hand and remember to be safe when the over is on.. Whilst the cakes baked we built dens out of pillows and chairs and finally when they were done cooking, we decorated them! All of the children have decided to wait and take their cakes home as they went to show parents and share with their families!

❤️ Kindness Once he gets his ten red stars for kind acts he gets to go to the supermarket and pick a chocolate 🍫 His first star was for gently stroking his sister’s face when she woke up....he often just jumps on her pram which she is never impressed with 🤦‍♀️ I got the idea to do this as this week one of the themes over at @letsplaymama is Kindness.

A spot of rainbow dropper painting to start the day. Can you spot the sheep? Fun way to use up some of the homemade liquid watercolours we used for our dinosaur eggs - they definitely contain essence of egg now so won’t last much longer!

Invitation to Create Turkeys🦃 with Loose Parts & Play-dough // We invited the children to create turkeys with @colorations.artoflearning play-dough and a tinker tray filled with loose parts from @discountschoolsupply. What we love most about play-dough invitations is watching how the different combinations of materials inspire the children to create in different ways. Play-dough has many benefits for children. The most important is the fine motor skill development. It is great for strengthening muscle tone in little hands – squishing, squashing, rolling and flattening play-dough all develop childrens muscles and encourage pre-writing and other skills such as cutting with a scissors, using a tweezers and holding a pencil. It also engages the children in their senses. Invitations enhance a childs free creative play, exposure to sensory elements, requires concentration, and are truly relaxing and stimulating. Tinker Trays are the perfect for limitless possibilities, foster problem solving skills, creativity, exposure to new materials, and decision making. Through this kind of free play children are really creating: using what they have and what they already know, and combining that to create a whole that’s greater than the parts. Loose parts and free play in childhood develops the creative genius of the future. #preschool #ilovealameda #alamedaca #earlylearning101 #thekidsplay #bestofalameda #sensoryplay #smartlittlestars #tactileplay #ctinquiry #powerofplay52 #powerofplay #earlychildhoodeducation #earlylearning #getcreativewith #finemotorskills #childcareadventures #loosepartsplay #discountschoolsupply #earlyeducation #earlyeducationmatters #looseparts

Look at these cute little ducklings. Is anyone else still putting their little ones in summer dresses but just with cardigans and tights? These knitted beauties are curtesy of Nin who could knit in her sleep.

Our Nursery Rhyme Box It’s world nursery rhyme week, so I have an excellent excuse for sharing our trusty nursery rhyme box. I get this out every now and again, usually with musical instruments alongside, and it’s always a hit. It’s a painted cardboard box filled with toys that have at least one nursery rhyme associated with them, e.g. cow - Old MacDonald, lamb - Mary Had a Little Lamb, teddy - Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear. The game is for M to pick a toy, name it, then try to think of an appropriate rhyme to sing and act. Often she can, sometimes I help. Her favourite is the dog - she takes it straight out to sit outside the living room looking in. She shuts the door (which has windows in it) and bursts into a rousing chorus of ‘how much is that doggy in the window’ 🐶

🎶Old Macdonald had a farm🎶 Nursery rhyme week & for todays #nov_playalong Im sharing 2 of our farm activities!

🎵 Poor old Humpty, poor old Humpty Dumpty! 🎵 Weve had some great discussions about safety this morning, prompted by todays rhyme. Weve investigated different materials and experimented with giving our egg a hard and a soft landing. We had lots of fun watching him plop safely onto the cotton wool balls and bounce onto the cushion but poor old Humpty cracked open on the hard pavement! We considered our own safety and the importance of wearing helmets when riding our bikes or scooters and strapping into our car seats when in the car. We made Humpty his own helmet and car seat using hard and soft materials and we were delighted to see that it protected him the next time he fell! Weve promised Humpty we will always wear our helmets and buckle up into our car seats, and hes promised us the same! 🥚👍🏻🤣 . . . . . #rhymeweek #nurseryrhymeweek #worldnurseryrhymeweek #nov_playalong #nurseryrhymes #humptydumpty #eggexperiments #earlyscience #understandingtheworld #safetyfirst #carseatsafety #wearahelmet #roadsafetyweek #childminding #childmindingfun #childcareadventures #earlyyears #eyfs

#nov_playalong // Nursery Rhymes. Humpty Dumpty @worldnurseryrhymeweek Humpty Dumpty day in a walk, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the kings horses and all the kings men, couldn’t put Humpty together again. Poor old Humpty, poor old Humpty Dumpty. Marty was so excited to see Humpty Milk tin sitting on the wall this morning and starting singing straight away. He really enjoyed role playing out the actions.

In honour of @free_range_play‘s #getcreativewith nature week, M and I have used the rain to create two more rain painted dinosaurs for our collection. The rain did all the work here - M simply laid bleeding tissue paper strips over my photo paper dinosaur cut outs and took them outside when it was raining. Once wet, she brought them in and removed the tissue and ta-da! Rainy spots and swirls all over 🌧

We love role play 😀 Today we dressed up in our high vis jackets and practised crossing the road, using our fantastic traffic lights borrowed from the road safety department, and visited the bakers shop. We used our pennies to buy some cakes and buns and did some great singing as well as counting, taking away and solving maths problems such as how many pennies would we need to buy 3 cakes? and if we sold all of our buns, how much money would we have? 🤔💰🍰 . . . . . #rhymeweek #worldnurseryrhymeweek #nurseryrhymeweek #nurseryrhymes #mathsonmondays #nov_playalong #roadsafetyweek #roleplayarea #imaginativeplay #lifeskills #childminding #childmindingfun #childcareadventures #earlyyears #eyfs

Invitation to Clean Your Teeth🦷 // We have been discussing how it is important to take care of our bodies and to keep healthy. We set out an invitation with several books about dental hygiene, Duplo Blocks/ice trays as Teeth, @colorations.artoflearning play dough from @discountschoolsupply as plaque, tooth brushes, and string as floss. The Duplo blocks/ice trays teeth brought to life what teeth look like when food is stuck or plaque remain on your teeth. We didnt provide any instruction there after and just let the children figure out how to clean the teeth. Practical life activities are not only enticing they are important activities for young children. Activities for care are both fun and great for developing order, concentration, coordination, and independence. There are a series of steps that children will go through for a this type of activity. It is wonderful for developing concentration, organization, and the ability to follow directions. Both the flossing and brushing of the teeth provided a good opportunity for building fine motor skills. #preschool #ilovealameda #alamedaca #earlylearning101 #thekidsplay #bestofalameda #sensoryplay #smartlittlestars #tactileplay #ctinquiry #powerofplay52 #powerofplay #earlychildhoodeducation #earlylearning #getcreativewith #childcareadventures #finemotor #finemotorskills #finemotoractivity #finemotoractivities

Exploring some new autumn loose parts today. The children used their senses to smell and feel the different objects. We discussed, shape, size and colour. The objects really encouraged the children to ask questions and engage in conversation as well as introducing new vocabulary.

My goodness so much going on in the land of early years play 🍪😆

CHRISTMAS BOOK SELECTION!!! 🎄📚🎄📚🎄 Many of you have messaged me and asked for book recommendations for Christmas so I’ve displayed the ones I will be sharing with my little ones this year. I have also ordered another 2 but will share those separately when they arrive. As you can see our favourite books appear to be those from @usborne_books We have a range of touchy feely books, lift the flaps, those with sounds, colourful pages, ones with rhyme, new stories, old stories and fit the puzzle piece ones too. I am a big lover of books, especially children’s books so please don’t think I’m suggesting you go out and buy them all. However, some of the local supermarkets stock these, Amazon too. Alternatively, try the library, or do a book swap with friends. What is your favourite children’s Christmas book and why??? #wearereading #dec_playalong #christmasprep #booklover #usborne #earlyreaders #hummingbirdsatplay #childcareadventures #entertaining_kids #treasurebabes🌈 #mayasmoonplay #earlyobserver #thisstarcan

• Imagination Center • 💭🌈 another fancy name for a not-so-fancy thing 😂 Slowly moving into our new house has left us with an unlimited supply of empty boxes, 📦 but we’re not complaining! Cardboard can be used for so many crafts and activities- so easy to work with, yet quite sturdy and durable 🙌🏼 . . . ♻️ We turned this appliance box into a creation station for Callum to unleash his inner artist 🖍 So far he’s coloured on every surface within the box and added some stickers here and there 😍 Multiple surrounding surfaces to colour on is much more fun than being limited to a sheet of paper 😆 Callum’s been showing so much interest in scribbling lately and so I love finding ways to extend and enhance his fine motor learning 👌🏼 The box is big enough for him to almost stand up perfectly straight and it’s easy to see that he believes this little space was made just for him 😂 it really is the simple things in life that bring the most joy 🤩 . . . 💡It’s great to let your child’s imagination and creativity run wild, but it’s also beneficial to them (and you 😅) to create visual boundaries 💢 This helps them learn their limits without taking away their independence. By showing them where they CAN be creative, instead of constantly telling them what they CAN’T do, you help them build self-confidence and create a safe learning environment for them to grow in 🙌🏼❤️ . . . #exploreplaylearn #sensory #earlylearning #invitationtoplay #teachablemoments #toddlerplay #sensorylearning #sensoryplay #learningthroughplay #playmatters #letthemplay #handsonlearning #creativelearning #creativeplay #everydayplayhacks #earlyyears #dailyparenting #momlife #momsofinstagram #momsofig #childcareadventures #preschoolteacher #teachermom #toddlerlife #toddlersofig #earlylearning101 #earlychildhoodeducation #getcreativewith

M’s painted leaf pile for #getcreativewith nature week! We used our @littlebrianart paint sticks for these and I think they are gorgeous (the metallic ones really make them pop!). Itching to make stuff from them - please comment if you have any ideas 😃
