He even has his own shell that he can crack out of. The great thing about foam when wet is that it will stick on top of itself to make layers. Plenty of new opportunities for more fun!
And we added a couple more birds too and Cakie wanted to give them all equal opportunities to hatch. Great chance to teach some nature facts and add to that knowledge and understanding of the world!
Hello little butterfly! Again, I glued on the details, but for an extension activity you could give your child small shapes and invite them to make their own designs. This picture illustrates beautifully how dirty our windows are. It may be due to the water used in this activity, or it may be due to my lack of cleaning them regularly. I’m not sure!
There are SO many other things you could cut out! Your imagination is your only limitation. I love how this activity can remain as a semi-permanent set up, can be used countless times and can be transported around the house (or travelling) to use on a variety of surfaces! Bath time Spring art anyone?
This activity is good for:
* extending creative thinking skills
* early maths: arranging shapes to make pictures
* knowledge and understanding of the world: seasons, life cycles, birds/nests/hatching, mini-beasts, growing, blossoms, tree types, gardening etc
* independent play
* involving both babies and toddlers together
