A rainy Sunday at home

Another day at home but we did manage to get out doors today. Alexander much better and no fever!
We went to the shops to buy potatoes for dinner and to the reject shop for some hair gel.
At home I attempted with the kids Mister Maker’s leaf prints.

Then we made some sensory colour bags with the hair gel. Emily is still playing with them. She keeps squeezing them and arranging them in different patternsI was not exact measuring the gel so some bags got lots and some the dregs. We added food colour and mixed different colours according to the packet directions. I added some marbles and plastic animals. The directions said packer’s tape but not having any I just used sticky tape which does not hold up to vigorous squeezing.  I found the idea here at teachpreschool and there are lots of fun ideas such as pressing our handprints in them or writing letters in them.  Or put them in the freezer for a cool pack.

Arranging the colours in a rainbow.

The children are now playing with them in the play room so I really need to find some tape to seal them up.
