Today we are thinking about the organs inside our bodies. Here are a few learning videos for you to explore together.
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!

Today we are going to learn about keeping our bodies healthy. We are going to have a think about healthy eating. We have provided two stories and an activity for you to explore with your child. Enjoy!
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!
