Safety Reminders For This Activity

 

In this next linked video from ‘The Dad Lab’ we are shown how to make a fun bubble snake. If you choose to make this with your child, please ensure that these precautions are taken- we want you all to take care. 
 
1. The adult needs to cut the bottom end off the bottle carefully. Please ensure that the plastic bottle is not too sharp after it has been cut. Apply the sock over the rough edge before giving it back to the child. 


2.Before you dip the bottle and sock into the soapy mixture- get your child to practice blowing through the mouth piece of the bottle. Remind them to blow and not suck the air. Please supervise this activity at all times! 
 

3. Alternatively you could explore blowing bubbles with a bottle of bubbles and wand you may already have. 

 

 Have fun blowing lots of bubbles and stay safe!

Can you gather some items of food from your cupboard or from your play kitchen? Can you sort them into 2 groups- healthy foods and not healthy foods? Glen Bear is going to try this now! While sorting the foods, talk about why they are healthy or not healthy. You could also discuss which foods are fruits and which are vegetables. Enjoy!

Today we are going to finish off the topic of ourselves by thinking about the Health Professionals who help us to keep our bodies healthy. The Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, Dentists and all of the people who work in hospitals. Here is a story about Topsy and Tim and an idea of some imaginative play you can enjoy together.

For your role play hospital you could also add some paper and pencils and let your child write the Doctor’s notes of what the patient needs. This will encourage mark making and provide some further experience to extend their pencil grip and control. Using language such as doctor, nurse, paramedic, patient, visitor, x-ray, stethoscope, thermometer, injection, temperature and medicine will extend your Child’s vocabulary.  Engaging in role play will help them to make sense of a hospital environment and they can add their own experiences to their play if they have any. Have a lovely weekend!
