NATURE PLAY

Today's Story Time is

By Christine Sharpe

Bea is a bird of unusual tastes …

While the other birds peck at ants and watch worms wiggle, Bea likes to bake buns and berry pudding. She loves dancing to disco beats and singing sweet songs to the moon. In everything she does, Bea stands out from the flock!

A joyful picture book about being true to yourself and daring to be different.

NATURE 

ICE BLOCKS

Freezing different things to thaw is a great  sensory activity. Kids can help find the flowers, create their own displays in the muffin cups and then melt the flowers from the ice using a wet paint brush.

CHILDREN USE PLAY TO INVESTIGATE, IMAGINE AND EXPLORE IDEAS.
