We had a great morning exploring with our friends from Toddlers 1!. Emmi, Vera, Olivia, Harper and Chloe loved playing on the seesaw this morning in the sandpit. Harry, Ryder and Jack and Maddi played chasey around the garden and played in the home corner in the cubby house.
We enjoyed exploring:
- Mud kitchen
- Bikes and motor cycles and push mowers
- Cars, trucks and sandcastles
- Pirate ship
- Garden play
We then transitioned inside to start our day. We all sat at the door and took our shoes and hats off and made our way inside for group time with Miss Chloe whilst Miss Bianca changed our Nappy’s and prepared our yummy morning tea. Today for morning tea we enjoyed fresh fruits and carrot cake. After morning tea time, it was time for the children to head off to explore the fun activities and environment’s that Miss Chloe and Miss Bianca had set up this included:
-Outdoor play (kicking and throwing balls)
– Making sensory balls with playdough and balloons.
-ABC building blocks
-Nursery rhyme puppets
– Dancing to the wiggles with bubbles
-Thomas the tank engine Puzzle
– Self-select toys around the room.
-Book corner- the children self-select the stories they are most interested in
-Home corner (kitchen utensils)
-Drawing with crayons
We started our morning activity time dancing to the wiggles with bubbles flying around the room. Harper, Chloe, Emmi and Maddi loved bopping up and down to the wiggles and watching the bubbles. Ryder, Harry and Jack loved chasing the bubbles and popping them with their fingers and crushing them when they fell to the ground with their shoes. Olivia and Vera enjoyed reading books in the book corner.
After we finished dancing Miss Chloe had a large Thomas the tank engine puzzle and Thomas guessing cards to follow Ryders interest in Thomas from earlier this morning. Ryder, Harry, Maddi, Vera, Harper, Chloe and Jack absolutely loved playing with the puzzles and helping guess the names of the characters. Jack and Ryder also did a great job counting out the cards with Miss Chloe. Emmi and Olivia enjoyed playing at the tables drawing and squishing the balloons filled with playdough.
After we had a big play inside we made our way outdoors to explore. Ryder, Harry and Emmi loved playing on the big red slide and sliding down laughing at one another and Emmi and Ryder also enjoyed throwing the ball to Chloe and trying to kick the ball to one another. Olivia enjoyed playing with the cash register with some of her friends from junior kindy. Harper and Maddi hid in the corner playing with prams and dolls. Jack loved riding the motor bikes up and down the yard.
We then helped pack away the room, we had our nappies changed and washed our hands to prepare for lunch time. We then found our drink bottles and headed to the table where we waited for Miss Bianca to ask us what we would like on our plate. Today for lunch we enjoyed a picnic outside with Mexican quesadillas.
It was now time for us to head to bed and rest our bodies. We provide an opportunity for the children to re energise their little bodies. After our rest it was time for our afternoon tea. Today for afternoon tea we enjoyed a selection of fresh fruits with brown rice cakes and cheese.
It was now time to explore our environment with our friends from Toddlers one. We enjoyed a big play outdoors with all our friends from toddlers one before we all headed home to our families. In the afternoon the children alternate from the back yard and the front yard to experience different toys and environments for play and risk taking.
Thank you for a fun filled day Toddlers!
Love Miss Bianca and Miss Chloe xx
