Hello readers and Happy Sunday !
I hope this blog finds you well. All children love messy play and love to get creative expressing their own ideas through creativity. You can give your child any resources you can get hold of and they will turn it into something exciting and fun to them. Children will be using their imagination, using their own initiative to create objects for a purpose to them. When doing these sort of activities your child will be developing fine motor skills , developing their imagination (which is a sector to the EYFS) and having lots of fun building on their emotionl skills and resilience. All of these are skills which children will thrive through life with.
Here’s what you need to make ‘space goggles’
. 2 empty toilet roll holders
. Stick on eyes
. Pipe cleaners
. Any craft resources you have
How do we make them?
1] Glue your 2 empty toilet roll holders together side by side.
2] Encourage your child 2 choose different colours and paint each of the toilet roll holders. (Remember to put some old newspaper down preventing any “accidental” spillages)
3] When the goggles has dried, provide your child with glue and the craft resources such as pom-poms , feathers, pipe cleaners. Buttons , glitter and sequences. Don’t be afraid of going extra with the decorating.
4] Leave the goggles to dry and let your child be anything they want to be when dry. They may even want to be mini Neil Armstrongs and go to the moon.
