Flying Start @ Marjon’s Toddlers Explore …
The open ended play with balls, tubes, pine cones and other parts they found in the garden and nursery encouraged the Toddler’s to transport, investigation and explore!
They used the tubes to stack and make towers, before exploring rolling the tubes.
When they added balls into their play, the children started to put them inside the tubes – demonstrating an enveloping schema. They then tried with pine cones and other small objects, exploring how the different items fitted and rolled!
The children then used saucepans and equipment from the mud kitchen to mix, stir and combine.
Play with resources like this is open ended as there is no right or wrong way to play … however we have found it allows the children to be really active and curious in their play!
