Our prompt for today’s #babipurchallenge is Fairtrade cocoa forest so we’ve made our own using toys from @babipur
.
Cacao trees grow in tropical forests in countries situated around the equator where the climate is hot and humid. Cacao trees don’t thrive in direct sunlight so you’ll find them sheltered under much larger trees that are also home to a variety of wild animals and birds. Ingredients for the many flavours that go into the finished chocolate products such as vanilla, banana, ginger, orange and cinnamon are often cultivated alongside cacao trees to create a rich mix of nutrients that feed the soil
.
Toys from @babipur used in our forest today are - Bajo Wild Forest Wooden Theatre, Grimm’s Forest and Lanka Kade Natural Trees elevated higher in the background using Grimm’s Natural Bridge

WINTER WALK

Today's #oursensorywinter play prompt was Winter walk, so we went for a walk at National Trust Knole Park.

I was going to take an egg box to collect items that we found along the way, but in our day to get out of the door, I forgot to pick one up! So instead we just looked out for interesting things and talked about them. We found beech nuts, sweet chestnut shells and most exciting of all, a woodpecker and lots of beautiful deer! It was amazing close they were.

We also used one of our favourite books "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" as inspiration and retold the story as we walked. We went swishy swashy through the long grass, stumble trip through the forest, splish splosh through the pond and finally found a bear cave to explore! Of course we have had to read it again now that we are home.

Gosh! Where has the half term week gone! It’s been so busy for us with a myriad of activities over planned as usual!! But I would not have it any other way; it’s a great time to catch up with friends without looking at the clock every 10 minutes and let the kids run wild, loose and carefree without a timetable schedule!

An invitation to create their own birthday cupcakes with play dough, sprinkles, buttons, and candles. They used the chair as their oven and even made the “ding” sound when it was time to take the cupcakes out from the oven. They were singing Happy Birthday to each other. #loosepartsplay #looseparts #imaginativeplay #childledplay #yegdayhome

It’s been a really tough week and then oh my goodness this sunshine ☀️ is glorious and brightening it all up!  Flu all round and then ending up in hospital with Amelies daddy yesterday with pneumonia and suspected developing sepsis. All very scary but the #nhs absolutely shone and had him on IV antibiotics, fluids and pain killers in no time and today he’s like a different person to the one that could barely move yesterday and Amelie is now enjoying the weather in the garden in #tobytiger and #malatights talking about the flowers and vegetables growing, climbing and practicing our gross motor skills walking up and down the bank. ————————#sepsisawareness #nhsengland #organicclothing #sunshine #walks #gardenlife #outdoorplay #thischildofmine #beautifulday #imaginativeplay #lovetoplay

Our invitation to play after rest time on Thursday was sticks these two gathered, beads and pipe cleaners. Super simple, but they worked diligently for almost an hour!
.
They started by making magic wands and turning each other into animals and then went to just beading the pipe cleaners making bracelets and necklaces. So much fun watching them do different things with these items and using their creativity and imagination! 💛 plus, E has asked for this activity everyday since!

Went for a walk and my little girl started collecting sticks, which she turned into a camp fire. She has such a wonderful imagination - she spotted 'fire' and we had to collect some and she was careful to make sure she didn't touch the fire. Lots of talk about quantity and comparison of length. Observations of natural objects were made too! #outdoors #learningiseverywhere #naturallearning #nature #eyfs #learntoplayplaytolearn #imaginativeplay #imagination #sharingideas #earlyyearsideas

Ocean slime - Mr 4.8 has been into all things “under the sea” this week & yesterday he requested slime. He did all the preparations himself & even set up the small world in an under bed storage container. He particularly loved making prints in the slime 💙🦞🐠🐬💚 (Recipe from @imaginationtree)

"Scribble Down Activity Pack Wild Adventures is an older KIDDOS favorite activity. It has a watering hole surrounded by foliage and dozens of colorful wild animal themed transfers to ‘scribble down' using creative imagination.⠀
Scribble Downs are ideal for journeys, as travel toys, for party bags and as a cheap, no mess rainy day activity. Simply rub-down over the image with a pencil and remove the sheet to reveal the image on the background scene.⠀
Suitable for children from aged 4 -10 years."⠀

👨‍🍳Restaurant Role Play 🍴
✨ I just had to repost these pictures of the boys favourite EVER role play game for #letsplayatoz_r! We turned the whole playroom into a restaurant and they played so happily for about a week!
✨ We used the amazing @homeedprintables restaurant pack which really helped the boys communicate their role play to each other. The boys had fun taking orders, cooking, enjoying their food and processing cheques! We even learnt about food groups and healthy eating whilst looking through the menu and placing orders.
✨ We've had an amazing week of play along with these lovely ladies
