What a wonderfully messy day we’ve had at holiday club!!

This morning we have been busy creating Halloween decorations for our Halloween party on Friday, as well as designing our own mythical creatures using the arts and craft equipment ‘Craft Art’..

We have also been making crackle foam with Miss Darlington using shaving foam and popping candy..

..as well as having fun in messy food play too which involves mixing oats, pasta and dough (don’t worry, we weren’t dishing any of it up for lunch!)..

The children love these sensory activities with all the different textures and sounds..

Saying this, we also have new equipment for water play such as buckets, jugs, pipettes, spray bottles, pipes and much more – the children were very excited to experiment with it all..

This morning we’ve been playing outside..

..and working in teams playing football and having rounders matches. We’re not sure who is more competitive though, the staff or the children – it’s very close 😉

While we’re on the subject of being competitive, have a look at our champion Speed Stackers..

There are some very steady hands at Hollinwood!

Luckily they’re equally good at picking all their toppled towers back up afterwards! Bingo with Miss Jenkinson was busy and we had quite a few happy prize winners today..

The bouncy castle is always fun, we’ve been playing pirates and smugglers, using our imaginations to role play being out at sea..

..before relaxing with a nice quiet ICT session..

Happy Halloween everyone!
