(Imaginary) fireworks were exploding in J-Block this morning as we celebrated Guy Fawkes Night. Due to time constraints we were one day late, but we didn't let that stop us discovering about Guy Fawkes and fireworks.
We painted our faces (and arms) with exploding fireworks and colourful sparklers. We also used cupcake cases to make a fireworks collage, this was a great cutting activity.
We used dye, pipettes, and straws to make
a huge mess colourful fireworks on paper.
We made a Guy out of baby clothes and newspaper to push around in our toy stroller asking, "A penny for the Guy," and some children even gave us play money. In the doll hospital we took care of our dolls who had burns from the fireworks. This poor dolly is covered in plasters!
One very popular activity was making sparklers with chocolate finger biscuits and 100's and 1000's. Just dip one end of the biscuit in hot water, then quickly dip it in to the 100's and 1000's.
And my favourite activity - shooting the toy rocket into the sky, almost like real fireworks.
I can hardly believe we only have 4 more Discovery sessions this year!
