At Seedlings, we have transformed our sensory area to a Christmas theme in our Little Pips room, encouraging the children to share and enhance their experience of Christmas.
Children are able to engage in open-ended activities, playing and exploring using their senses, building on previous experiences and gaining new ones. They are developing their creativity and ability to think critically; filling and emptying containers and categorising objects through their characteristics.
The rising twos have shown a particular interest in putting the baubles on the tree (and taking them off again!), stacking various sized tins on top of each other to make a Santa and snowman and dressing up in Santa hats and a snow man outfit; whilst the younger babies have shown curiosity of the lights and the texture of the baubles.
