Maples’ mini-beasts

Maples had a very productive morning!

While mini-beast hunting continued, salt-dough versions of the creatures we found, were made around the log circle. The children chose natural materials to give them wings, legs, eyes or antennae.

Busy, busy, busy…

Mini-beasts were also painted…the children first made mud and then added chalk (which they crushed with a stone and mixed into the mud to make different colours)

Back in Hollies…the marvellous mini-beasts were displayed for all to see…can you guess what they are?
