We make use of materials such as glue, scissors, different kinds of papers and card. We enjoy modelling using beeswax and clay. We also enjoy teasing and knitting wool, sanding wood and sewing – making things to celebrate seasons and festivals.
Whilst we were out picking blackberries for our jam the children saw how their hands became stained purple. We expanded on this and learned how fruit can also be used to dye cloth.
On this occasion we decided to try our hand at making some shoulder bags.
It takes a little time to softened up, but once it’s pliable the children love the feel of bees wax in their hands.
Some of the children had such fun making their own bubble wands from garden wire and bamboo.
