Sports Challenge: A Different Kind Of Sport

Twinkl has many great resources, including plenty on the theme of sports. So today Squiggle decided to take a different approach to the Sports Challenge; she did some activities at home, including a sports themed wordsearch, some dot to dot pictures and we played finger tennis. Great fun!

Squiggle has also really enjoyed acting out different sports with her Sylvanian families, which also involved some very creative ideas to make the resources she needed…

30 Days Wild – Day 23: Nature Art

Squiggle loves creative activities so today she decided to do some nature- themed art. She did some leaf rubbing, observation drawing and printing. We also remembered some nature art activities that we have enjoyed doing previously, both at home and at art group too.

Previously we have studied the work of Andy Goldsworthy, who is one of my favourite artists…

And we have also used twigs to paint with too (no pictures though)!

Tissue Paper Flowers

Squiggle got a giant paper flower making kit for her birthday from her nan. It is a simple technique, she was able to do it fairly independently, but quite effective. It could be done easily enough with any sheets of tissue paper and pipe cleaners, the kit is not really a necessity but it was a fun activity (and a lovely present!) nonetheless.

Choose 5 or 6 sheets of tissue paper. Cut the edges into a selection of zigzags, tassels or curves (as per picture)

Stack the pile of paper neatly then fold it concertina style.
