Arts and Design
Here are a few creative ideas for you to have a go at.
Please remember that its hard for our grown ups to get all of the things we may need, so if you are struggling to find resources, lets be inventive! Recycling bins are great for finding model making materials and you will have lots of things around the house which you could use too, just make sure you ask your adults before you dismantle anything please!
Herby Sensory Dough
Enjoy making your own scented playdough, follow the recipe below to make your basic dough and then get creative! Snip herbs carefully with scissors and knead them into your dough, explore the different smells and textures of each one.
Top tip - If you do not have any fresh herbs, you could always used dried ones, or even spices!
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of salt
1 cup of hot water
2 teaspoons of cream of tartar
2 tablespoons of oil/baby lotion
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, then stir in the hot water.
Lost and Found
You could have a go at making your own characters and props from the story of Lost and Found. The pictures above will give you a few ideas of the resources that you could use. Yours doesn't have to look the same, you can use whatever you have available.
Once you have made your characters, you could try to act out the story, how about putting a puppet show on for your family?
Snow Writing Tray
This is a fabulously fun way to practice writing words, simply fill a tray with some salt or flour and use your finger to write a word, then give it a little shake and start again!
You could write some wintery words, or some simple CVC words (dog, cat, pan..) Don't forget to use your Fred Fingers to sound out the words before you write them.
