Messy play - sandMessy/Creative Play

This month the Squirrels have been experimenting with clean painting. They all created some beautiful pictures by putting clingfilm over the paint paper and using their fingers to draw patterns in the paint. As it has been Halloween this month, the Squirrels had great fun being creative and making spiders from paper plates and pipe cleaners and ghosts with cotton wool for their bodies. Boooo! They also made some spooky Halloween cards to go home.

The Squirrels have really enjoyed exploring the sand tray this month. Their favourite thing to do was to pour the dry sand from one tub to the other! Have a look!

Discovery - sorting and matchingDiscovery Play

Throughout October, the Squirrels have been discovering jigsaws more and more. They have been working together using their teamwork skills to try out the trickier puzzles. Well done Squirrels!

The Squirrels have also been discovering and exploring colours and numbers using the sorting and matching toys. We are all getting really good at recognising colours!

Outdoor play - BikesOutdoor/Physical Play

Out in the garden the Squirrels have been wrapping up warm to enjoy zooming around on the bikes and scooters. They have also been practicing their hula hooping and crawling through the little tunnels! During our Halloween party we all had a great time dancing to the spooky music!

At the end of October we had our Halloween Party. We all had a fantastic time dressing up with all our friends and enjoying some spooky activities. We had spooky, slimy messy play with green spaghetti, jelly and shaving foam! We also enjoyed singing some spooky songs with Lisa and her guitar and tasting our yummy pumpkin soup for snack.
