Rice is so much fun!

It really did take me way too long to discover how awesome dyed rice is! I wish I had given it a go many years ago when I ran a kindy room. Oh well, better late than never! How to dye rice: Ingredients As much rice as you like! A dash of vinegar As much…

Easy art activity

Drawing is a fantastic way to express yourself, even at 2 years old! Today we pulled apart a cardboard box and had some fun. Alex learnt about cause and effect, trial and error and colour recognition as he placed his marks on the cardboard. We talked about colours, shapes and the names of people he…
