This is great for mark making and lovely outdoor play on a hot day! So simple, no clean up! Fill up a trug with water, add mops, brushes, brooms, sponges, spray bottles. Sit back while your children play. Dipping their tools in and making marks all over the garden/pavement/shed. :)
Getting to grips with shapes! This activity can also be great for mark making. Best outdoors this one, tiz a bit messy but easily cleaned. This is shaving foam! Squirt and spread across your surface. We then used our plastic shapes as templates and with our fingers drew around the outside, lifted up and had created our shapes which we then talked about. Great for shape classification!
