Hinckley - Toddler room Halloween stay and play

Hinckley - Toddler room Halloween stay and play

Halloween was lots of fun in toddler room. We dressed up in our Halloween costumes and explored some messy Halloween activities!

Apple printing
We used half apples dipped in paint, then we printed them onto the paper recognizing the marks we made, and the apples made pictures like pumpkins! We chose the colours green, orange and black. The toddlers were fascinated when they mixed all of the paints together to make new colours.

Exploring the Spaghetti (wiggly worms!)
Hiding amongst the orange and black spaghetti were creepy spiders and bats. We practiced our fine motor grip and used the tweezers to explore through the spaghetti finding the creepy crawlies. Once we had found them all, we counted them together. Some of the children enjoyed the spaghetti so much that they picked it up with their hands to explore the texture of it. We then spoke about how it felt. The children used language such as ‘sticky’ ‘slimy’ and ‘ewwww’.

Pumpkin play
We then explored a huge pumpkin. The children used spoons to scoop out all the messy inside, which we put into a tray to explore later. After exploring the pumpkin we spoke about its colour and if the children have one at home. Children then used the spoons to scoop up the spaghetti from the previous activity, filling up the pumpkin and emptying it out, over and over again, even hiding the spiders inside the pumpkin too! This allowed the children to build on their imagination, and linking materials together from different activities together to observe what would happen.

The children remained thoroughly engaged in their messy activities and really enjoyed having freedom to explore the resources in their own ways. Following our Halloween stay and play we are going to explore different textures and mixing colours together to see what happens!
