What a hoot!

The children have been enjoying the lovely ‘Owl Babies’ by Author Martin Waddell recently. Owl babies is a lovely tale of three baby owls who wake up one morning to find that their mother has gone. They sit on a branch and wait wondering when their mother will return. It’s a charming, reassuring book for any child who has ever worried about Mummy leaving them alone and the beautiful illustration seems to really capture their imagination.

To extend their interest in Owls, we have made some fab Owls in our Arts and Crafts sessions and enjoyed sticking with some cute Owl stickers. We’ve read more Owl related books including “Wow! said the Owl”. I still have some lovely Owl drawings an older ex mindee did which I just love.

Easter Chicks

On Thursday I set out some bits for the children and suggested we made some Easter chicks. They simply had some yellow playdough, some yellow feathers, orange cardboard triangles and some googly eyes. They absolutely loved this and took great pleasure in creating their own chicks. Don’t they look great?
