Last week we moved from exploring Penguins and the South Pole to polar bears and the Arctic. Here are some of the activities we’ve done for Arctic.
Sensory tables – one full of fake snow and other with rice.
Small world play.
A new fingerplay with stuffies to play it out.
We built igloos at the art table using styrofoam bowls and packing peanuts.
While continuing to build our igloo a big polar bear moved in and
that provided an invitation to play inside.
We added the pillows for comfort and now its a hide away for quieter play.
Time to be alone with the bear or to make a fort.
This afternoon I added a blanket underneath and smaller pillows. I’m not sure if we’ll add any more jugs to the top but will focus on making a bit more of a tunnel
out the front.
I like the coloured lids on the inside of the igloo.
