Green Eggs And Ham!


The children have been showing a huge interest in the Dr Seuss story ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ recently, listening intently to the story and commenting on the different characters and images on each page.  After we had read the story, we recreated the green eggs and ham using our play dough.

The children used quotes from the book as they moulded and manipulated the play dough into different shapes. We also involved our fine motor skills by cutting around the images carefully and sticking them onto our plates, recreating scenes from the story.

The children were so engrossed in the activities and used their imaginations to continue the play throughout the morning, role playing the different characters independently.

Here at Leigh’s we love focusing on stories, extending them and incorporating them into both our adult led and child initiated play.

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
