Recently, we have been using lots of messy play such as shaving cream, rainbow rice, water play and finger painting to explore colours and colour mixing! We extended on this, when the children took interest in the Junction’s art project as we played outside, so we got out some squeezy paint bottles and the babies enjoyed getting good and messy as they squeezed paint EVERYWHERE and then got hands on as they used their hands to mix the paint all up. Our works of art are displayed in our room next to our family tree. We then added some spaghetti to the mix. We had planned to use the squeezy paint to colour the spaghetti but our babies were so into exploring it by taste, we decided to leave it, au la natural! Instead we used (and named) colour bowls to extend on our interest as we scooped pasta up, filled our bowls then emptied them so we could squish the pasta between our fingers. The next day we squeezed paint onto our paper and then used our pasta as paint brushes as we dragged it through the rainbow of paint to make lots of swirls and whirls! We also made some red jelly and enjoyed exploring it as a group on the table. The first thing we did of course was have a little taste before exploring the red jelly as we splatted it with both our hands and used the mashers. We also loved squishing it under our fingers and spreading it over the table as we made a wonderful sticky mess! We did even more hands-on play as we first explored soft, fluffy colours and looking at all the different colours they come in. We then made some awesome lavender goopy goop and the babies enjoyed mixing the feathers with the goop to make a wonderful mess. We love getting messy and having fun in Sandgate and Miss Leeanne, Miss Jo and Miss Anusha have lots more hands on, messy experiences planned!
