Our week finding CIRCLES

So my child knows what a circle is and can find one, but we still find benefits to that being our focus. It added much more motivation to each activity as it felt it was for a purpose.  

At our weekly forest school session we made these beautiful boats to sail over the puddles. “Look circles!” He exclaimed with joy “this will be good for your website” 🤪🙈 -we’ll he wasn’t wrong!

Our circle boat sailed on by looking at home amongst the circle rain drops.

I was extra eager to try this experiment for our theme this week as I have heard great things and it involves food 👌🏻 So Uber easy, Just place skittles on a plate in the formation and add water. Wait 30 seconds for the magic to start!

The good old diy Lightbox comes to rescue yet again for our theme this week... I put hair gel and coloured buttons into a ziplock bag. The idea is to push the buttons into the correct circle. It was very tricky for my sensory kiddo to do, and great for his motor skills!

When I think of circle I can’t help but think of cake. We measured out the ingredients to make a huge chocolate cake, then spoke about fractions and dividing as we ate it 😏

We love Pom poms they are so very versatile! I create this sorting station using plates and bowls and giant tweezers. T had a tricky time using the tweezers at first but was determined to complete the task!

T was very intrigued by this simple task. He had to fill in the laminated circles using the pipette and coloured water. Far harder than it looks and wonderful fine motor practise 👍🏻
