During November in the Baby Room, we have enjoyed lots of different activities and books, to list some of our favourites. We celebrated Diwali by making Rangoli patterns using chalk, we made Diva lamps out of salt dough and we also made paper lanterns. We did lots of mark making in a sensory tray with flour and glitter to make firework patterns.
We celebrated Remembrance Day with a sensory tray of coloured spaghetti, pots and pans.
We read a book about dark and light and enjoyed playing in the dark den with lots of different sensory lights and projectors. We got creative, made stain glass windows, and painted cling film to see if the colours shone through.
‘Aliens Love Underpants’ was the next book we read, and we did lot of different activities: we made UFO’s out of paper plates, searched for aliens in jelly, we painted tinfoil to represent what the surface of the moon looked like and we even tried to paint aliens.
For Children in Need, we decorated a Pudsey Bear with paint and spots and we baked some delicious cake that we decorated.
‘Whatever Next’ was the final book of the month and we flew to the moon in different sized boxes, sung song with the parachute and painted different planets.
