Leigh’s Salon!


Happy Monday everyone!

We always make a conscious effort to follow the children’s interests and recently that has been hairdressers. Some of the children have been coming into nursery with new/different hairstyles and their friends have been recognising this and talking to them about their experiences when visiting the hairdressers/barber shops.

This provided us with a brilliant opportunity to develop and encourage the children’s creativity and fine motor skills. This activity included various stages of hairdressing such as cutting, brushing, colouring, washing and drying the hair. All of these gave the children a chance to  take part and they were able to work together to talk and discuss the different stages of what they were doing. This activity gave the children a chance to use the scissors safely and also provided an opportunity for them to practice their cutting skills which will help with their pincer grip when they are ready to start forming letters and numbers.

We discussed at length with the children that they must never cut their own or anyone else’s hair as it must be done in a professional hair salon/barbers authorised by their parents!

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
