At the beginning of the month the butterfly room were getting ready for fireworks night and enjoyed making firework pictures using sponges and scrubbing brushes to mark make onto white card as “fireworks” effect.

We all enjoyed taking part in a variety of different messy activity such as shaving foam, glueing with materials and water play to do with the colour of the month which we chose to be “blue”

In the middle of the month the children and the staff In the butterfly room came to nursery dressed in their Pyjamas and also some with painted faces to raise money for children in need. We also took part in different activities such as yellow water and used paper plates to create Pudsey bear faces.

We have also visited book bug a couple of times this past month and particularly enjoy joining in with our favourite nursery rhyme “the wheels on the bus” and joining in with the actions too. We all loved the part when our teachers and the book bug lady held up the Lycra and we all sang a song as us children lay or hid underneath.

As December approached the butterfly room began getting organised for our Christmas fare as we all enjoyed getting messy taking part in making salt dough for our Christmas tree decorations, our calendars and using porridge oats and glitter as reindeer dust, to sell as our enterprise at the fare.

Butterflies have also took part in making snowflakes using lollipop sticks and painting them with glittery blue paint to add to our winter/snowy window display. We have also made a snowman using different art materials to decorate it, with some support from our teachers to cut it out and put up onto our window.

As now it is close to Christmas we are now getting sorted for our Christmas and looking forward to our visit from the Christmas fairy.
