Recycling and Mark Making at Children 1st @ The Marina

Following the recycling topic, the children enjoyed playing in the tuff tray which contained an array of corks, lids, plastic bottles and boxes. They loved filling up the bottles using tongs to make their own shakers and made cakes in the boxes. Imaginations ran wild with the children turning the materials into all kinds of pretend goodies and led to some interesting conversations. “I made you strawberry cakes. They’re 50p.” and “These are rainbow chocolate buttons.”

Meanwhile the Bobtails have been busy mark making, using a range of materials enjoying their creative and messy play. Tracing in the sand, using chunky chalks, painting and printing, the Bobtails were really absorbed with their mark making play.
