Fern and fir

13th December 2023

 Romans and Willows continued their activities related to the Owl Babies story book, by using natural resources to make a beautiful owl picture this week. They also had fun using two different tools…a palm drill to make holes in pumpkins (which they pushed sticks into) and a hammer to bash the colour from a green fern leaf. They placed the leaf onto some cotton material, folded the material over, and then hammered on top. We used the imprint to make a Christmas tree card. . 
Oaks used some fir tree cuttings as a natural paint brush…they daubed the fir sticks in paint and made some fabulous forest creations! They also enjoyed using different number stones, the play doh, threading bird feeders and playing on the swings.
