The children are now getting into the routine of brushing their teeth at nursery each morning. When they hear the maracas they know it is time to wash their hands and come and sit at the table to begin. The children help to count out the right number of blobs of toothpaste and when it is their turn they take their toothbrush out of the holder and hold it ready. Ask your child how they know which toothbrush is theirs. When everyone has got their brush they scoop up their toothpaste and get brushing.
In nursery we have been exploring our senses. Today we investigated the smell and texture of lemons and limes in water. The children squeezed the juice out, observing the colour of the juice, and the smell it created. We moved on to explore more scents. Peppermint teabags was a firm favourite. We thought mixed herbs smelled like pizza and ginger smelled like cake. We mixed all our scents together to create a smelly sensory soup.
