On Wednesday June 12th we held a stay and play session for Friends, Uncles, Dads, Grandads Etc..(FUDGE) in celebration of Father's Day.
We were joined by Dads, Grandads and Mums who first enjoyed a breakfast of pancakes, pain au chocolate, strawberries and blueberries topped with maple syrup.
Our activites were based on different stories to support story week. We created a sensory walk with sawdust, pebbles, sand, blackberries and water which is based on ' We're going on a bear hunt'.
The children enjoyed decorating gingerbread biscuit people ( Biscuit Bear), creating clay hedgehogs, painting and making wind wands ( What makes a rainbow?). In the outside area the sand pit was set up with trucks and diggers ( Tip Tip Dig Dig) and the Dads enjoyed creating a den from canes,sticks and tarpaulin etc...
To finish off the session the adults ( FUDGE) formed a band where each member played a different instrument and joined in with singing different songs.
Thank you to all those who attended the Stay and Play session and for helping make it a special time for the children.
