Monster Mash Up: 🧛‍♂️🧟‍♀️😈👾👻🧛‍♂️🧟‍♀️😈👾👻🧛‍♂️🧟‍♀️ Sensory play with Frankensteins brain. I am assuming its green like the rest of his body. Google was also not fully up to speed in answering my brain question 😂 So, we have assumed and made it a green monster brain!

We are very excited to announce that our first OOSH centre at 30 Oakland St in Glendale officially welcomed children for the first time at the start of this week! Ahead of the opening, we had the play spaces set up to provoke each childs imagination and encourage creativity. This is what one child created!

🍁DUCK & GOOSE, FIND A PUMPKIN🙌🙆 My twins enjoyed this books! They used dot markers to find the perfect pumpkin. Duck and Goose, where is your pumpkin? Is it in the log? Is it under the leaves? Is it in the apple tree? We will surely enjoy going on a pumpkin hunt with Duck and Goose . . . especially when they find the perfect pumpkin at the end!

I’ve been very inspired by the #everydayplayhacks posts I’ve been seeing lately! I made a trip to @ikeasingapore yesterday, and have also been ordering lots of craft stuff online. Can’t wait to get started! For starters, I borrowed this idea from @play.learn.laugh using the OSTBIT plate holder and link rings. Interestingly, Tristan was more attracted to the soft and stretchy hair ties. He also surprised me by placing his new bath stacking cups on the rack (and then proceeded to stack them back correctly on the boat). He also did the same with his stacking rings from @melissaanddougtoys! #tristan_chin #12monthsold

F U N N E L S || Cardboard box, holes, funnels and rice. Top points for simplicity but I’ll warn you, they like this...a lot! So prepare for a rice snow storm. My oil cloth managed to catch most of the flying grains but we did have to crack out the broom after but that always adds to the fun. | | | #recycle #sensoryrice #funnels #cardboardboxfun #thewayweplay #playbasedlearning #learningthroughplay #waldorf #steiner #waldorfinspired #waldorfhomeschool #play #dubaimums #childhoodunplugged #letthembelittle #playbasedlearning #playmatters #waldorfathome #everydayplayhacks #useyourimagination #stayathomemum #reggiokids #toddleractivities #playathome #1yearold #1yearoldactivities #montessoriathome

😝 POPSICLE POKE 😝 This was inspired by @play_at_home_mummy I made ours into a number recognition and matching game since this is an area I’d like to focus on with R 👍🏻 Turns out he’s actually pretty good with recognizing his numbers. Sometimes I think it’s a fluke... other times I’m sure he’s got it! 😮 He REALLY enjoyed poking the popsicles into the slots. R often doesn’t spend too long at activities that are very structured (it’s like he knows Mummy is trying to get something out of him!) but after “my way” we did R’s way... and he thought it was like a cake! So instead we blew on the candles the amount of times that matched that number. Mummy got her way and R got his 😋 🌟Super simple to make and can focus on any concept- numbers, letters, upper case and lower case, colours, shapes, fruit and veg, letters in their name etc 👌🏻 🤓Younger children may just enjoy poking the sticks in the slots which is fantastic fine motor skills . . . . . #toddleractivities #earlychildhood #earlychildhoodeducation #intentionalplay #entertaining_kids #everydayplayhacks #numbers #numberrecognition #numbermatching

Proud Mom moment today! 👩‍👧 With Amelias first, REAL Christmas around the corner, I decided to get some pre-Christmas unwrapping practice in! 🎄🎁 I (sloppily, and with minimal tape) wrapped up pieces of a puzzle that had been largely ignored. Once she figured out what it was all about, Amelia was ALL IN. She did an AMAZING job matching the animals and fitting them where they belonged! . . . Some highlights: at one point, she noticed the lion 🦁 on the board. She then pulled out the remaining pieces and carefully selected one ... The lion!!! Im sure it was a coincidence, but it was SO COOL seeing her choose a specific piece. Best part? When we were all done, Amelia signed more!!! She has NEVER asked to extend an activity! Id say this is our first, official and true HIT! 😁 . . . I cannot remember where I borrowed this idea from, but Im guessing @makingonefun or @new_trick_kids 🤷🏻‍♀️ . . . #everydayplayhacks #creativeplay #playtime #ameliaeowyn #babygirl #momlife #momminainteasy #mommysgirl #puzzles #melissaanddoug

💗 DANCING HEARTS 💗 - I can’t remember where we saw this experiment but it was so simple we had to give it a go! Swipe across to see the videos! - We drew on some plates with whiteboard markers, squirted some water on and gave them a gentle blow through a straw. - The drawings lift off and float or dance around, it was really fun! Some colours worked better than others and some shapes worked better than others so it was really interesting to see! - Would love to see if anyone else gives this a go, tag me @this.playful.life 💚 • • • #thisplayfullife #howmanyplayfulways #letthembelittle #simplifytheirworld #play #learningthroughplay #playbasedlearning #playmatters #invitationtoplay #openendedplay #toddleractivities #reggioemilia #reggioinspired #montessori #montessoriathome #waldorf #playdiscovercreate #imagine #create #everydayplayhacks #nature #smallworld #sensory #pantryplayideas #dinnerprepdistractions #tpd_water

Nothing beats a good colour matching game. I love the use of the food pouch container lids for both match and balancing the balls! Heidi (@the_harmony_tree_house ) #Repost @the.littles.learn • • • DIY colour matching game! I have a giant tub of pouch lids and have barely used them for anything, despite constantly telling the family not to throw them out because I need them for craft! On the weekend we bought a set of the Grimm’s rainbow balls so I decided to make a little matching game for Mr 1. I used hot glue to stick matching pouch lids onto a small piece of board. I didn’t have an orange pouch lid so I just painted a yellow one orange and gave it a coat of pva glue so it is a little more hard wearing. The balls rest perfectly on the pouch lids making it a great little game! Mr 1 has been carrying this board around all morning just touching the lids. When I set up the game for him with the balls we talked about the colours and at first he just put the balls on any colour (which was great for his hand eye coordination and balancing) but after a few times he was able to start matching the colours. I set this up in our playtray because I knew the balls would end up rolling away...and I was right because everytime he had finished them all he gave them a big swipe and knocked them all off! Mr 3 wanted to have a turn but Mr 1 had run off with the board 😅 So I gave him matching pieces of our Grimm’s rainbow and asked him to roll the balls to the matching colour which he enjoyed. #diygame #earlylearning #toddleractivity #everydayplayhacks #pouchlids #colourmatching #learningathome #handeyecoordination #finemotorskills #finemotoractivity #madebymum #craftymum #grimmswoodentoys #grimmsinaustralia #kmartplaytray #preschoolactivity #playathomemummy #playtolearn #learningthroughplay #earlyyearsideas

The children at our centre across all our services are supported, guided and encouraged to use their own natural learning abilities.

🌸 S P I C E S 🌸 This week the children has a blast painting on the wall with spiced water. We choose to use cinnamon and ginger. It smelt so beautiful! The children no only worked on their shoulder and hand strength by painting on a vertical surface they also got to experience the lovely smell from the spices.

Fun with #purple water and ice today 🙌🏾 these kids can’t get enough of water play 📌we made purple ice cubes filled with cranberries 📌 I poured warm water into a bin, added a few drops of oil and food colour and tossed in the ice cubes and straws ✨the straws took this to another level as they decided to taste it and then practiced blowing bubbles . . . . #oct_playalong #blackfamily #blackrepresentation #blackrepresentationmatters #blackfamilymatters #blackmoms #blackmomsofig #blackmomsofinstagram #momsofinstagram #momsofig #momofthree #familylife #preschool #homeschool #homeschooling #unschooling #unschoolers #blackhomeschoolers #everydayplayhacks

•spooky sort• 🎃🎃🎃 Target 1.00 section for the win! I got cute little pumpkin erasers, scary spider rings, and Halloween tin pails in the Target dollar section. I threw the erasers and spiders in a tub of beans and the girls spent their afternoon finding and sorting into the tins! We started off using tongs. Using tongs is one way to strengthen your child’s hand muscles to help them with their pencil grip. By the end the girls had spoons, shovels, and bowls to assist them in finding everything.

Small world animal match. 🐳 Coloured rice, wooden animals, flash cards and a few other bits and pieces. Starts beautiful and ends in fun. 😄 #learnthroughplay #toddleractivities #everydayplayhacks @everydayplayhacks #playeveryday #kmartplaytray @kmartaus @tagfromtheheart

F is for FINGERPRINT FRUIT 🍓🍉 Owen made these crazy guys this afternoon. I cut out the shapes and he used a stamp pad to make all the seeds. We added some green crayon for the watermelon rind. The googly eyes were his idea 👀 and I think they’re a nice finishing touch 👌🏼. Watermelon and strawberry are two of his FAVORITE fruits. Do you have a favorite fruit?

SPOOKY SHIRT DESIGN🎃 Save, bookmark, and tag a friend. This Breakfast Invitation is super juicy! 🙌🏼 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I was super tried. 💤 Like, “do I really need to make a Breakfast Invitation?” tired. But sometimes, Breakfast Invitations take 3 minutes to set up, and 25 to play. That was this one 👈🏼and I’m so glad I pushed through. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Here’s the low down: 1️⃣Tape down your @melissaanddougtoys paper roll. (Link in bio) 2️⃣Outline a couple shirts. 3️⃣Put a couple sheets of Halloween stickers in a little bin. Amazon links in bio, or head to Target Dollar spot. Did you need an excuse? You’re welcome.👊🏼 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Now I see you running to set this up! - good. It’s such a hit we played all day long, then I made 2 more since then. I added the link in bio for even more details and links to supplies. Tomorrow morning is all yours. ☕️

PumpkinPasta Threading is a great way to work on hand-eye-coordination and fine motor skills at the same time. It makes for the perfect rainy day activity. 🎃 We started with a simple P is for Pumpkin Letter Match to incorporate some literacy, then got started on our craft! Check out todays Blog Post for all the details (link in bio). What are your tips for successful pasta threading? Id love to hear!

(Half) Birthday Candle Play- Today is H’s half birthday (18 months 🎉)...to celebrate we tried out this fun candle play dough cupcake poke (thanks @new_trick_kids for the inspiration!). H was more interested in digging with the candles and tearing the playdough into little bitty pieces but it was fun all the same! PS- I tried out a new taste-safe no-cook play-dough recipe that was shared on the M1F fb group: a single serve pudding cup and cornstarch (and some sprinkles!) 👍🏻👍🏻 #birthdayfun

Ever been to these huge bird nests at @babylonstoren ? Close to the ducks? They are marvelous to sit in! We recommended a visit to Babylonstoren during our last “Growing Things” Workshop for all the wonderful plant variety. But how about going there again.. for the sake of our bird theme? or simply because you enjoy exploring beautiful places and having a chill time where the children enjoy themselves immensely (my reason)? You won’t be disappointed.. (and no, not an ad 🤭 just parent enthusiasm.😄) #thingstodoincapetownwithkids #babylonstoren

D is for Dinosaur Fossils. This week we will be focusing on the letter D and dinosaurs! Dinosaurs are one of my son’s favorites, so I know this week’s activities will be some of his faves! Foe this activity we made salt dough together. Then we rolled them out into circles. He made prints with his small dinosaurs and footprints with his big dinosaurs. • • Materials: Flour, salt, water, rolling pin, large toy dinosaurs, and small toy dinosaurs. • • Instructions: Pour 1 cup of flour into a bowl. Mix in 1 cup of salt. Mix in 1/2 a cup of water. Stir then knead. Roll into 2in. balls and use a rolling pin to flatten into a circle. Use dinosaur toys to make prints. Let dry overnight. • • Skills: Fine motor, hand eye coordination, big/small concept, sensory, and creativity. • • A few of my friends are doing dinosaur activities this week too! Be sure to follow along if you’re interested in seeing more creative dinosaur activities. • • @_hickoryandash @life_with_my3arrows @thewildflowernest @watsonhomestead @asfaraseasttowest

S has been happily spelling the names of his family for about 2 weeks now. So this morning we added in a super fun “rainbow” word. 20 minutes later we had quite the -AT family going! On his own he noticed the repetition of letters which helped solidify recognizing them. He also asked to match the markers with the letter A it corresponded with. #wildandfreechildren #letthembelittle #peacefulpreschool #letthembelittle #everydayplayhacks #preschoolliteracy #preschoolathome #preschoolteacher #wordfamilies

EYEBALL GRAB 👀 Although its nothing super mind blowing, if you havent given spaghetti sensory play a try- Halloween 🎃👻 is the perfect time! In all honesty, we havent used cooked pasta as a sensory base since E was 8 months old (mainly because its not something we can keep and reuse over and over) but when we do, you cant help but dig your hand 🖐🏼 right in! ••••• I dyed some spaghetti noodles (cook until al dente, rinse with cold water, put in a bag with food coloring, mix, sit for 15 minutes, then rinse with cold water). Added a few eyeballs 👀, our learning scooper, and an egg carton. Supplies are linked in my stories ☝🏼 ••••• 👶🏽Ages 6M +: Focus on the sensory aspect. Dont be alarmed if/when your child decides to turn this activity into snack time. Totally okay! Just keep redirecting- squeeze the pasta, grab handfuls, sit inside the container, feel the spaghetti on your toes. 🧒🏻Ages 18M +: Although your child might not be able to independently use a learning scooper until theyre closer to age 3, early exposure is key 🔑. With support, a cup, or your hands transfer the eyeballs into an egg carton. Sort by eye color. Hide the eyeballs under the pasta. ••••• P.S. Dont forget to supervise and guide your child while they explore!

Todays morning activity...pasta threading the letter U. Mommy Mistake: Penne glued about a half inch apart is a little tricky for a 2 year old! The little guy did great but we ended up working together through a lot of it instead. Scafdolding is a wonderful way to support and teach kiddos foundational skills and confidence. Tip: Use slightly bigger pasta and glue them a little further apart if its your first time doing a pasta threading activity. Pumpkin pasta threading coming later today! 🎃 Happy Monday! #finemotorskills #pastathreading #littlelearnersallaround #everydayplayhacks #letterplay #breakfastinvitation

💙 Learning Names 💙 . . I set up this name activity for my little man, using the @kmartaus coin sorter and alphabet letters. . . I blu-tacked the letters of his name to the backing board, and placed the remaining letters in a basket. He then had to match them up and slot them in (with mummy over-emphasising the letter sounds 😂) . . I was amazed it kept his attention for as long as it did, so that’s a win in my books! . . #packsoffun #namerecognition #earlychildhoodeducation #perthplaycommunity #toddleractivities #teachermum #teachersfollowteachers #mumsfollowmums #momsfollowmoms #everydayplayhacks @everydayplayhacks

T for Tp roll Train 🚂 . I was so inspired by the lovely Rachel @themakermum ‘s tp roll trees that I wanted to make something out of tp rolls too! So we got our arts and crafts on the other day and made a train! 😊 . All you need are a couple of tp rolls, some coloured paper or paint, flat cardboard for the wheels, some washi tapes, yarn, glue, double sided tape and a hole puncher. Little man was happy with the glueing part and putting the washi tapes around the rolls, great for fine motor practice and I did the rest. I cut 2 different sized rolls for the front part of the train. Folded one end and put double sided tape to attach it on the roll and the wheels too. Swipe to see more😊 . He was happy with this and played with the train for a while and even tried taking our nins for a ride! 😊 I’ve got a few tp rolls stashed so this week I’ll be sharing activities made out of them 😊 if you’d like to join in, just tag me or the use #tprollcreation.

Well today ended up being a complete ‘making day’. Nothing like gale force winds and a power outage all morning meaning you’re trapped at home due to electric gates 😂 to make you do ALL the craft! It was so much fun- we may have sacrificed a whole roll of masking tape for the cause mind you, but it was a fun day to just be fully present, nowhere to rush off to or errands to run, just a slow day at home. Bliss. I need more of these! Feather crowns for everyone 🍃

A quick and simple maths game that brings together number recognition, counting and addition ⚀⚁⚂⚃⚄⚅ Roll the dice, count the dots and remove the correct numbered stick. You could play this with 2 players and take it in turns to roll the dice and remove the correct stick... the winner is the person with the most sticks! For my younger son Ill just use lolly sticks 1 to 6 and 1 dice and for my older son Ill keep all 12 sticks and 2 dice so he is adding the two totals together. Ill post a video 📺 in my stories later of me and the little one playing (that is if he wants to of course) 🤗 The EYFS Framework (DforE 2017) requires children to to be provided with opportunities to ... develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers (and) calculating simple addition problems #mathsonmondays #mathsactivities #mathsisfun #teacherathome #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #eyfs #eyfsideas #ks1 #earlychildhoodeducation #earlylearning #earlyyears #homeschooling #homeed #homeschool #homeeducation #everydayplayhacks #childhoodadventures #learningathome #learningatheart #learningisfun #learningthroughplay #learningtocount

Sweetly named by Abel this activity is called.. RAINBOW PLAYDOUGH HEDGEHOGS 🦔🌈 A really fun game with numbers, Abe loves anything that involves playdoh, and bright colours of course. Perfect for counting to ten, number sequence and recognition.🔢 Takes me back to our first playdate with @sami_aa_ , Abel thought sticking spaghetti in playdoh and threading on cheerios was the most amazing playtime ever and so did I!💖🤗😘 Lots of cereal was consumed in the making of this activity 🤣 🥣🥣🥣🥣🥣🥣🥣🥣🥣🥣🥣🥣 #mathsonmondays #preschoolactivities #counting #learningnumbers #creativechildhood #playideas #earlychildhoodeducation #invitationtoplay #playbasedlearning #learningthroughplay #everydayplayhacks #earlymath #playathomemummy #homeed #homeschoolpreschool #loosepartsplay #reggiokids #reggio #reggioemilia #montessoriathome #weloveautumnplay #stemlearning #stemactivities #stemeducation #grimmswoodentoys #earlylearning101 #playdoh #playdohfun

#mumhackmonday ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With the festive season approaching, I am always on the hunt for some awesome #christmashacks ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You know when you cut a piece of wrapping paper thats just that little bit too short to fit over a box?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Enter the diagonal wrapping method... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Apparently, this is the way we should be wrapping our presents (and uses less paper)... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mind Blown. Again... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (skimpers off to the corner to try it herself)... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 from But first, coffee (who has a whole youtube video on this which is worth watching!)

Thinking face..... I made this mystery box for Aidan, it was super easy to make and the perfect #everydayplayhacks as it is just a cardboard box! The idea was to isolate his sense of touch. It encouraged him to use it to identify different objects and use descriptive language. When he picked up the rock I asked what it felt like, he told me it was cold, hard and heavy. Great mathemical terminology! I asked what it was and he knew it was a rock. The seed pod was a bit tricky to get out of the hole so he had to have a little look to twist it the right way. Cant wait to use this box again, there are so many possibilities with it!. . . . . . . . . . #tagfromtheheart #busytoddler #handdevelopment #childhood #finemotorskills #earlylearning101 #learningthroughplay #educationalplay #letsplayatoz_f #educationalplay #playmatters #playdiscovercreate #playbasedlearning #letthemplay #play #dontforgettoplay #playideas #childhoodunplugged #toddlerideas #toddleractivities #cardboardboxcreative #playislearning #invitationtoplay #montessoriathome #montessoritoddler #montessori #mysterybox #followthechild #sensoryplay

#sensoryplay An artic themed sensory play. Shaving foam as snow, water, pebbles and some lovely colored stones of different shapes.. polar bears, penguins, walrus, reindeer and seals were some of the animals we added to this sensory bin while focusing today on the polar bear and the walrus.. The amount they learn while playing is amazing.. key takeaways today : Polar bear : Favorite food - seal but also eat beluga whales, fish and birds.. Mamma polar bear digs a den in the winter, has her Cubs and they come out in spring..a cub stays with his mamma for up to 2 years.. Walrus : when it gets too hot, its skin turns pink. They make a lot of different noises - whistles, barks, grunts, growls, snorts and coughs. Male walruses have long tusks. The use their flippers to raise their body off the ground. Fun learning! #biglittlethings #preschoolactivities #preschoolers #pretendplay #letthembelittle #letthembekids #letthemexplore #creativelearning #creativekids #creativeplay #playandlearn #learnwhileyouplay #learningwhileplaying #letthemplay #learningthroughplay #creativechildhood #creativitymatters #learningisfun #playideas #smallworldplay #playmatters #earlychildhoodteaching #playbasedlearning #everydayplayhacks #openendedplay #articsensoryplay #polarbears #walrus

our delivery from @invitationtoplay arrived today, pretty sure Ill know the postie by name in no time 😂 we set up this simple small world using our new trees. I have been eyeing these trees off for a while now (for the kids of course 😜) and the quality is genuinely amazing . me and ark are working on making this log house together. a project thats allows us some one on one time while the baby sleeps. Ill share some more on that soon! 🌿

While the girls napped today I made them up a little dinosaur world for afternoon play. They loved waking up to this! They played for a fair while and kept going back to it which was awesome 😁 I have to get creative and do something like this more often 🦖🦕 #cabinfever #notwhatweplanned #wastingthisperfectweather

@Regran_ed from @findthelittlemind - Building Brick Fall Corn Craft 🌽 We recently did this fun process art activity for the @creativeqt blog and my kids loved it so much I just had to share. . 👆🏻blog link in bio👆🏻 . Process art like this is such a leveler with kids of different ages (mine are 19 months and 5 yrs, but they both were able to make colorful decorations). . #findthelittlemind #creativeqt #toddleractivities #finemotorskills #sensoryplay #steam #processart #legos #duplos #painting #paintingwithatwist #kidsart #fall #fallcraft #kidscrafts #kidscrafts101 #artsandcrafts #kidsactivities #handsonlearning #everydayplayhacks #tagfromtheheart #fun - #regrann

For some reason I found the word purple really difficult when thinking what to do. In the end we went for some purple water play. I gave Elsie the choice if she wanted pretty or spooky water play and she chose spooky. We added scoops and shot glasses and she played with it for ages making drinks for the bats and she kept saying ‘This is a good set up” and “I love this”. So a big win for us! Water did go everywhere but we had fun and that’s all that matters! I’m looking forward to seeing what the playalong team come up with today for the word purple: The #oct_playalong team: @mummylouwithlilyandwillowtoo @roseandvioletmama @claire_jeffery81 @amythislittlelife @beckys_treasure_baskets @theconstantdaydreamer @printplaylearn @mama.smith.to2 @oursensorykids @brightbuttonschildminding @entertaining_elsie @mygirlsmake @mayasmoonplay @something.sensory @mumtomessyboys @letsplaymama @childcare_adventures

Threading picture! . A couple of weeks ago @play.learn.laugh made a threading board with some rigatoni pasta! I loved this idea and thought Id try something similar. I glued a piece of paper onto a bit of old nappy box and painted a quick tractor onto it. I then painted some rigatoni pasta in black and green and glued them on to the outline of the tractor, making sure to leave a big enough gap for little fingers in between! Once these were dry I gave Lawrence a kid needle, that was threaded with some wool, with a large head at the end. I explained to him that he had to try to thread the needle all the way around the tractor following the pasta path! It took him a few goes to understand this concept but was great at it towards the end. It was awesome to see those little fingers working very hard and the concentration on his face! . #toddlerplayideas #playideas #tractortheme #farmplay #letsplayatoz_f #finemotorskills #diytoys #playbasedlearning #playbased #invitationtoplay #everydayplayhacks #creativemum #threadingactivity #educationalplay #kidsplayideas #keepthembusy #playactivities #playandlearn #playandlearnactivities #learningthroughplay #playathomemummy #playathome #littleplayideas

@Regran_ed from @play.learn.laugh - Spray gun fun in the sun! The spray gun is the ultimate outdoor accessory in our backyard at the moment, cheap and so many uses. We have been doing the good old spray the letter/shape/number as well Aidan (Mr 2.5) just spraying everything and anything! With an old chopping board and some PVC pipe we made this ping pong ball stand. The idea is for Aidan to stand a certain distance away, squirt the balls until they fall off, chase after them and balance them back on the pipe to start again.We took this away with us over the weekend and it was such a hit with not only the kids but the adults too! In our first attempt to make this we used golf tees as stands but with any breath of wind the balls fell off. The PVC pipe holds them much better and makes it that little bit trickier to knock them down!

Pom Pom Soup 💜 I have seen so many beautiful Pom Pom soups lately we just had to give it a try. Thanks to @the_paige_diaries and @play_at_home_mummy for the inspiration! . . . We just used water and Pom Poms, in our #kmartplaytray and the boys used tongs and table spoons to scoop them out onto a jar. Remi (2yrs) was very interested and went back and forth all day- sometimes attempting the tongs but mostly scooping all of the Pom Poms out tipping them back in. Great fine motor work and tool manipulation work for his little hands. . . . #thewhimsicallearner #playbased #playbasedlearning #sensoryplay #waterplay #finemotorskills #playtray #pompomsoup #toddlerplay #toddlerplayideas #preschool #playideas #playideasforkids #earlychildhoodeducation #earlychildhood #play #letthemplay #screenfree #screenfreekidsactivities #everydayplayhacks #letsplayatoz_f

🦁🐯S M A L L W O R L D🐯🦁 . . This is a wildlife reserve.🐅🐆 It was very simple to set up because I already had the rocks and green rice from previous activities.

📸: @taegan_and_thomas Play dough is a favourite in our household at the moment so I can’t help but share all the wonderful Playdough activities we are tagged in! The possibilities for this play are endless. It’s a little strange and new for them to begin with but given lots of opportunities to explore its amazing just how much they can get out of this stuff. We’ve started making our own and I’m planning on filming tomorrow to show you just how easy it is! Cooking, toddlers and filming, gee wish me luck 😆 . . .

This is the best lighting I could get on this dark, dreary day. A quick play tray for Miss 3 when she wakes from her nap. I have her basket of animals right next to it because they always join in. - I do have a slightly more exciting play tray planned, just waiting on some @safariltdinaustralia animals to arrive and for the rain to clear (will it ever?!) so we can collect some bits and pieces for it 🌿 • • • #thisplayfullife #letthembelittle #simplifytheirworld #play #learningthroughplay #playbasedlearning #playmatters #invitationtoplay #openendedplay #toddleractivities #reggioemilia #reggioinspired #montessori #montessoriathome #waldorf #playdiscovercreate #imagine #create #everydayplayhacks #nature #smallworld #sensory #kmartplaytray #pantryplayideas #dinnerprepdistractions

🐠🐟 Gumnut Fish 🐟🐠 So Max loves fish, thought about getting him one for his birthday but life is busy enough already I fear another pet will be my undoing (the goldfish sank the boat, or something like that).... instead Nina and I made him this one.

Okay, I know I’m not the only Mum/teacher who keeps all their recycling am I right? Oh the endless possibilities... we made our little baby elephant a special house today...while listening to the wind whip up a gale outside.

• GOLF TEES • Plus marbles and a cardboard box 📦 . This made for another great rainy day activity this morning! . I pushed some golf tees into a cardboard box to make holes and took them out again, then the girls took turns hammering them in the box (great hand/eye coordination activity 👌🏻) and then balanced marbles on top of the tees 🙌🏻 it was tricky work for Miss 2 and the look of concentration on her face as she worked was priceless 😍 (check my stories to see her in action) . If you have younger toddlers who aren’t quite up to the hammering, they could simply push the tees into the cardboard box which would be a great fine motor task 👌🏻 or even into playdough or a block of polystyrene! . I’m completely ready for this rain to stop, we haven’t had a sunny day in a week and we are all going a bit stir crazy over here 🤪 . . . . . . . . . . . . #earlylearning #playislearning #teachermum #playbasedlearning #learningthroughplay #playmatters #invitationtoplay #diymum #earlylearning101 #kidsactivities #reggiokids #reggioinspired #childhoodunplugged #preschoolready #toddlerplay #preschoolplay #stayathomemum #homeschool #homeschoolpreschool #montessoriathome #wherelearningmeetsplay #letthemplay #preparedplay #intentionalplay #slowliving #playathome #playathomemummy #letthekids #everydayplayhacks

#Repost @play.learn.laugh • • • • • Another little trick with our IKEA plate holder! I used BluTac to fasten it to the floor and grabbed a bunch of rings. I left it like this and Miss 8 months went straight to it! She pulled the rings off, chewed them and attempted to put them back on, which was exactly what I had in mind!
