Outdoor Mark Making Easels | Amy Louise

My favourite thing about I do is the inspirational people I meet along the way. I recently came across the fabulous work by Kerri who is a childminder, rated Outstanding by Ofsted in Kent. Her work drew me in. The way she presents activities for the children is pretty special and I am over the moon that she will be joining us on Learning and Exploring Through Play.
Today I am sharing an outdoor mark making activity using Nature and recycled materials.

Churchfields Farm | Amy Louise

This week we ventured to somewhere new – Churchfields Farm. We went Friday and I have already been back to revisit on Sunday with James and Neve in tow. What a lovely find it was!

Cardboard Road Small World | Amy Louise

It’s been the season for cardboard box galore as of late. I’d just got back from the school run. Hot and bothered. The twins were busy playing with their cars on the windowsill and in these moments where I should probably take a breather – I get a random idea pop into my head, to make something.
I popped to the recycling. Brought out a box and grabbed the sharpie pen. Read more »
