The children in Early Years have had lots of Halloween fun! We have been participating in lots of pumpkin activities such as mark making on pumpkins, hammering pumpkins, painting them with paint and shaving foam, pumpkin boats in the water tray and pumpkins in our mud kitchen too! We have also had red slime in our outside water tray filled with spiders, snakes and other scary things!!!
