Number play || this is us playing around with some number recognition today. we wrote numbers in our confetti tray, placed the corresponding number of @lego pieces into the tray, and pegs and counters onto the number cards. there are so many ways to learn about numbers and how they work together. what are your favourite number games?

Paper plate lion || miss8 made this adorable paper plate 🦁 this afternoon. she painted the plate yellow, cut strips of double sided paper and then curled them around a pencil before pasting them around the edge of the plate. she also drew his face and dabbed on some red water paint for cheeks using a wet cotton ball. so many skills practised including scissor skills, hand eye coordination and fine motor skills. our doubled sided paper is from @micador

Craft stick 100's || miss5 loves counting and making number patterns to 100. she's always so proud of herself when she makes it to a century. a couple of months back we made number charts using craft sticks arranged in rows. today we made 100s charts arranged in columns to show miss5 a different way that the numbers could be ordered. i labelled craft sticks in groups of 10, asked miss5 to arrange them in order and then asked her to make some counting patterns using our @thecreativetoyshop metallic chips. she loved it! the nice thing about this activity is that it also makes a great puzzle that can be used over and over again.

🎨giant art🎨 i mean, go big or go home, right 😂😂 and boy did we go big here 🙌🏻 of course, big also means more likely to have a giant mess 😬 but don't worry - the all white couch that's about 10 ft from kate stayed perfectly white 😘 it's all about having a game plan ⚽️🏀🏈 so for this wild painting time, i hung big sheets of kraft paper on our sliding glass door 🏡 having kids paint / work on a vertical surface (instead of always at the table) is huge for muscle development 💪🏻 it takes a whole other set of muscles to hold a paint brush up and out ⬆️➡️ i got the kids into their smocks (from @lakeshorelearning ), got their paint cups out (also from @lakeshorelearning - they sent me both of these years ago & they're still faves) and then the most important part 💦 a wet washcloth for each kid and one for me 💥 that way i can keep any messes contained right away 🤞🏻 painting on a big surface like this always lasts longer... add in a little spotify 🤣 to paint along to some tunes and you have one fantastic art activity 🎉i know that painting with toddlers can be a little 😬 sometimes but it really is all about having a game plan from the start 🙌🏻 check out my tips and tricks for painting with toddlers via the link in my profile 😘😘

Little Wise Toys
Medily (the little wise toys' hippo) and her friends have gathered some fun facts about hippos for you and your little ones to enjoy. . the hippo is the second largest land animal on earth (the first is the elephant). a male hippo can weigh as much as three small cars! . the name hippopotamus means ‘river horse’. . an adult hippo needs to resurface from the water every 3-5 minutes to breathe. this is an automatic process and, even if a hippo is asleep underwater, it will rise and breathe without waking up. . when hippos are completely submerged in water, their ears and nostrils actually fold shut to keep water out. . resting in water helps keep hippopotamuses temperature down. . hippopotamuses reproduce and give birth in the water. . hippo calves can suckle on land or underwater by closing their ears and nostrils. . the closest relations of the hippopotamus are cetaceans such as whales and dolphins. . although hippos might look on the large side they can easily outrun a human. they have been known to run at around 30 kph (19 mph) over short distances. . hippos are regarded as one of the most dangerous animals in africa. . a male hippopotamus is called a ‘bull’ and a female is called a ‘cow’. . . . . #funfacts #hippos #hippopotamus #earlyyears #earlylearning #earlyeducation #learningisfun #funlearning #instakids #earlychildhood

We had a starting point activity but all the children wanted to do was climb the mountain. allowing them freedom to choose what they want to do gave them a whole new adventure. it may have been snowing but no one complained about being cold! #fun #snow #climbing #grossmotorskills #forest #forestschool #cold #children #learning#earlyyears years

🎨 egg splatter painting 🎨 i’ve been wanting to try this activity for a few weeks, so today was the day! using the plastic eggs (ours from @kmartaus ), we filled them with slightly watered down paint and then sealed around the middle with tape. then with a big piece of card, we splattered the paint onto it - the eggs come with holes already in them, perfect for this activity 👌 this was a collaborative art piece, with the whole family contributing!! my husband even snapped a photo of me, which is a rarity as i’m usually the one behind the camera 😂 the completed piece is now drying and i can’t wait to find a spot to hang it! #packsoffun #smockson @smocks.on #collaborativeart #familyart #eggsplatterpainting #painting #messyplay #earlyyears #earlychildhoodeducation #earlychildhood #familyfun #easteractivities #easterart #aussiemum #teachermum #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram

Book one: ‘gula & colos find a new home’ joey was getting older and gula & colos had taught him about being careful; to stay hidden and quiet when the indigenous tribes visited the area for their festivals. never, never climb into the trees or eat the leaves along these pathways, they would say, danger lurks there. joey had seen the tall dark slender shapes moving silently and gracefully through the forest: he knew not to get too close.

Children have an inspiring sense of wonder. their world is exciting, fresh and full of curiosity. when they explore with their senses and soak up the natural world, they can make the most remarkable discoveries.....and friendships. 💓🙌🌿🐴 #discover #sensoryrichworld #love #homebasehope

Gift bags....a simple one but a fun one. this activity allowed my little guy to practise taking objects in and out. it also encouraged him to search to objects that weren’t visible all the time. when he would look on the bag he would initially smile and then take out the object. i had put baby save metal objects for his to remove. #simple_sensory #earlyyears #openedendeday #sensory #exploration #babyactivities
