According to this BBC news report, parents are at risk of being misled by “manipulative marketing campaigns” regarding children’s snacks.
Last week, the children were busy making these terrific tiaras! I adapted the activity slightly depending on their age which ranges from 18 months to 6 years old. They all loved the activity and wore their fantastic creations with pride!
Online safety for children is a real worry. Personally, I much prefer to keep my mindees away from it altogether and their introduction to technology comes from toys such as v-tech touch and learn tablets and laptops and learning computers and other child specific electronic learning toys.
The elder children (aged 4-6) all really enjoyed decorating their own concertina fan after school today.
Aren’t they fan-tastic?! (Sorry!)
What do we all think about this?
Before becoming a Childminder and a Mum 4 years ago, Dinosaurs and Unicorns never really featured in my life!.
These days however they seem to feature rather heavily(!) and are always a hit with the kids…
The kids enjoyed colouring in these lovely Kookaburra and Kangaroo pictures after school last month for Australia day.
With all that snow now (hopefully!) behind us, here at Aston Childcare our thoughts are turning to Spring!
To get us in the mood we’ve been colouring these pretty flower and butterfly templates. I love these activities where the very youngest in the setting (17 months old) and the eldest (6 years old) can get involved.
