Easter Activities

Here are 14 Easter themed activities we have selected which we think would be lots of fun during the holidays - children can do as many (or little) as they like. Maybe even one a day?

Sensory Play Materials

Here are some great recipes for sensory play materials such as playdough, slime and some taste safe options such as edible sand, taste safe paint and coloured salt. All perfect for mark making and simple sensory play. 
Enjoy!

Our Favourite Songs

In Flamingo Class, we use videos/songs to give children additional cues for a lesson e.g. using the brushing teeth song while we brush our teeth. I have compiled some of our timetabled songs as well as a few class favourites in this document. Please feel free to use them while at home too.

Dough Disco

At school the children regularly take part in dough disco to help develop their finger strength and fine motor skills. Here are some videos you can try with your child. These could be done once a day as repetition is great!
