Ice Cream Sensory Play | Amy Louise

I’m not sure how we did it, but school is out for Summer! Horayyy! We’ve had a heatwave the last few weeks and its a welcomed relief being free from a little routine! During the boys nap times me and Neve are enjoying some quality time together and today we made a back garden Ice Cream shop. 
I brought the most adorable ice cream bowls and spoons that I have been really looking forward to using with her! I will share where I brought them from below. She has always been a fan of sensory play so this was really up her street.

Sticky Tape Nature Art | Amy Louise

We are pretty much half way through our Summer holidays. Its gone by so fast! When Neve broke up in July, I thought – ‘BRILLIANT we have so long off together now for lots of quality time’.I feel like I’ve blinked and 3 weeks have gone by just like that.

From the early days we teach children colour recognition. We give them the freedom to mix colours here and there – but then what?
Today I want to share with you a lovely activity (and story) to build on knowledge of colours.

My Role as an Educator Poster | Amy Louise

Coming to work with and teach children can be a long process. Some of us dedicate years of our lives training to be the best we can be. It’s a profession you go into with the drive and ambition to make a difference. You alone will impact a child’s life and if you’re great at what you do the impression that you leave on a child will never leave them.

Sensory Fruit Water Play | Amy Louise

With weather really pleasant as of late, the invitation to play outdoors is often too tempting to refuse. We are spending most of our days in the garden lately and I love it! Makes such a difference having an open space to burn off energy and have fun!
