The Mud Kitchen and Outdoor Play
We have had a very exciting time playing, exploring and building our friendships. We are learning how to be more independent by putting on our own wellies and waterproofs, then taking them off when we have finished our mud play. It's tricky remembering not to walk on the wet play area in just our socks!
We made mud pies, soup and a giant potion with twigs, leaves and stones. We worked together transporting mud from the digging area and took turns with the utensils. We had a fantastic time jumping in puddles.
As we play we are developing our social skills, learning to share resources and wait patiently for our turn. There is so much we can talk about as we play and laugh together, developing our communication and language skills while we have fun.
We made patterns on the sand, chalked Rangoli patterns on the floor and enjoyed exploring the different sounds of the pans and tea pot percussion.
