Winter themed EYFS play ideas

Here is where I’m going to collate all of our winter themed projects – Arlo is three and due to start school in September. We don’t have a strict schedule or routine, I just like to try out new activities at home when we can, and try to stick to a theme for a week or two and incorporate messy play, arts and crafts, baking, nature and whatever we can to reinforce the learning new ideas and encourage creativity. play along with us and let us know how you get on.

Having the opportunity to try out the habitats and ecosystems toy […]
