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.

The hall is currently closed due to covid restrictions but with spring in bloom there’s plenty to explore within the […]
  • Hone is where the heart (and office) is.

Working from home made me really value my living space and I decided back last spring […]
  • Home learning with Play Osmo

We’ve covered every messy play idea imaginable and it’s fabulous that parks and tourist attractions are starting to open up. Like most families we all still need a bit of down time […]
