Is the "fish" picture, the wallpaper paste in tights? That looks fab!

Hello - just wanted to add my ideas -

 

cooked pasta - Spaghetti / shapes with or without food colouring

 

Sand mousse - dry sand with washing up liquid mixed in ( messy but will exfoliate your hands beautifully)

 

wet compost

 

water and flour and egg - pretend pastry

Gosh Wolfie, how observant are you, I thought it was a fish, but on closer inspection I think you're right!!! :o

 

I don't understand how the paste doesn't come through the holes though! And whose job is it to fill the tights in the first place! It does look like a great activity doesn't it!

I have done this Peggy idea - with wet sand and washing up liquid in the tights, the children loved filling them with sand, squashing them, getting the sand out, making lots of different shapes.

Good Observation skills there Wolfie. xD

 

I find wallpaper paste is ALWAYS lumpy when I mix it up, even for home 'real' DIY :o:( (hence it doesn't squish through the tights, well it does a little which makes it feel FAB)

 

and of course it was ALWAYS my job to fill up the tights, wouldn't be so much fun if I let others do it. (even though the children can do it too)

and thanks Ger, sand and tights is fun too. :(

Hi Abbs, A warm welcome to the forum and thanks for your first post. xD

 

Unlike me, a person renowned for rambling and loooooong sentences, I do like a person who when they have something to say says it concisely. :o

Welcome to the Forum, eclmmcca!

 

Congtratulations on your first post - am looking forward to hearing more about you and your work.

 

Love the magnets and spoons idea. This week we've had shaving foam in our builder's tray, then crazy soap and then finally we used it as the base of our bamboo wig wam (or is that teepee? :o )

Are plastic coated paperclips still magnetic though?

 

I've just tested mine at home and they do pick up although I use the extra large metal ones we use on our tracing cards on the tuff spot

snow has been amazing

I chopped off big blocks from the snowhenge we had made,stacked them into a hill in tuff spot ,poured blue and green food dye on it and threw lots of gold and green glitter on as welland all around,put dragon in a crevice,wizard on top and a gaggle of princesses and kings,princes at the edge....it was a wow moment when the children came in to the classroom

 

they dug caves and poured the coloured water,re sculpting the hill .......I had to go out 5 times to replenish the snow
