In our baby's environment, we have been very busy exploring arts and craft.
Our Kaiako have included focuses on national and centre events that have been celebrated throughout the month. This month we have celebrated Mother's Day and Pink Shirt Day which symbolizes anti-bullying. Even our Teachers dressed up in pink (can you spot Matua James in the pictures?).
Our tamāriki love to touch and explore with their senses, and really enjoyed our pink playdough with beautiful natural pink petals given to us by our Kaiako freshly picked from her garden. The tamāriki loved the activity as they explored and felt the different textures creating masterpieces as they played with and alongside one another.
During this activity tamāriki were able to explore their learning environment through using their senses in combining different materials from the natural and material worlds together. What a great way for our tamariki to acknowledge these special events through creativity and play, it also provided lots of fun.
