Vegetable Smashing Toddler Activity

Vegetable pigment printing! Just for fun we folded veg into watercolour paper and smacked it with toy hammers and rolling pins to release the natural pigments on to the paper.

The red cabbage was very successful and the coriander gave off a lovely smell.

Sticky Fabric Toddler Activity

This week we adapted our sticky wall activity slightly to enable us to make a fabric collage. We used sticky back plastic (the kind you use to cover books) and a bit of masking tape to produce a sticky table. I’ve been collecting scraps of material for ages without much idea of what to do with them. Turns out they are perfect for this. It’s great because we can keep moving the fabric around and peal them off when we are done.

If the plastic hasn’t lost too much sticky you put the wax paper backing back on and save it for another day. We saved ours and put it up o the window the next day to carry the activity on.

Autumn Conker Kebabs Fine Motor Activity

We are bonkers for conkers! They are a super, free and plentiful resource this time of year. We’ve been exploring how we can use them. We’ve drilled holes in a few and added some hole punched leaves to thread them on to sticks and laces.

With a bit more sparkle they could make lovely christmas decorations!
