I had some connector pens and she had a wonderful time clicking them together, matching colours, making a castle with the pens, etc. We had lots of talk about colour. There are quite a few greens in the pack but only one red, one orange and one black. Lots of talk about colour, dark, light, bright, dull, yellowish, etc.
I also had some coloured tissue paper which became the roof of the castle but eventually was used to make a little collage - she is learning to use scissors (it is quite difficult to cut flimsy tissue paper in mid-air).
|The castle, with roof, is at the far end of the table. Most of the mess is mine!|
As the two of us were talking about colours, I stayed with the primary colours (also influenced by that being the sort of paper I had easily available).
So now I have 6 little pieces - I have to work out what I could possibly do to develop them into a unit, as is the task.
