Animal Footprints!


Recently in Snowdrops we have enjoyed focusing on animals after one of our Snowdrops took an interest through copying their noises! We use in the moment planning to plan and adapt the environment to follow the interest of the babies.

We had so much fun making different animal prints in play-doh, using a low level table to encourage the Snowdrops to pull to stand and trays on the floor to prompt tummy time and sitting unaided.

During this activity the babies enjoyed discovering new prints as they pressed the animals into the play-doh. We used positive language throughout this activity encouraging the Snowdrops to make new animals sounds such as “moo” and “baa”.

One of our Snowdrops taught us a animal sound holding the horse up and making a click clack sound with their tongue!

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
