How are you all?
I hope you have all had another wonderful week at home and I can’t wait to hear all of the things you have been getting up to!
Did any of you manage to make a Mini Beast Hotel? and have you found any Mini Beasts in there yet?
As a lot of you have told me you have been practising really hard with writing your name and practising numbers, I thought you could use your pointy finger in sand to write your name or even in shaving foam or Gloop! ( Gloop is cornflour and water)
Give it a go and see how you get on.
I have attached a Scavenger Hunt chart for you to use next time you go for a walk. It’s great fun having to search for all of the items on this list.
You could try printing this week for Art.
Fold a piece of paper in half
Drop paint on the one half of the paper
Fold it back over and press down
Carefully open the paper and discover what picture you have made
Why don’t you have a go at making some Salt Dough this week. You could make Salt Dough figures and hand prints at home. You could give this ago and give it to someone you love in your family.
Salt Dough Recipe
Makes 1 ball
Prep 10 minutes
Cook 3 hours
- 1 cupful of plain flour (about 250g)
- half a cupful of table salt (about 125g)
- half a cupful of water (about 125ml)
1. Preheat the oven to its lowest setting and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
2. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Add the water and stir until it comes together into a ball.
3. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and shape into your chosen model. You can roll it out and cut out shapes, numbers or letters using biscuit cutters, or make any kind of model you can think of. We made some fruit and veg shapes plus cupcakes for a teddy bear’s picnic.
4. Put your finished items on the lined baking sheet and bake for 3 hrs or until solid.
5. Leave to cool and then paint.
Have another fantastic week and I can’t wait to see what you have been doing.
