Ayla quickly added her stacking cups into the tray and began filling and emptying them, Mistletoe was very cheeky and began throwing snowballs at her to which she quickly returned fire! Saying “cheeky elf”. She wanted me to play today so I helped her fill the cups we talked about more and less as well as full and empty. The tray is still out so tomorrow we will encourage some mark making too!
NOTE – THIS ACTIVITY ISN’T EDIBLE
. Split peas, normally they are with the lentils in the supermarket. (roughly £0.70p for 500g)
. Cotton wool balls
As simple as emptying the split peas into a tray. I used a tuff tray but anything with side will work! You don’t even have to make it into a Christmas tree shape!
. Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
. Communication and Language.
. Physical Development.
. Expressive Arts and Design.
