We’ve been reading lots of books about Space and Aliens and J asked this morning to make some aliens – which I asked from what – I got a lot of suggestions but playdough was repeated over and over again – so I looked through our playdough box and found some tubs of blue and green that we had got from some parties and set them out with a selection of pom poms, googley eyes, cotton reels, pipecleaners and craft sticks and let J and T play.
Initally we started with fairly small Aliens as you can see from above but they got bigger and bigger as the morning went on. This open ended creation is fantastic for imagination – as J was creating he was describing what the alien would be like and do. T was making marks with the different bits in the playdough and playing with them moving them around the table and into the other room.
Our biggest Alien is above, apparently it creeps and crawls it’s got lots of eyes to see behind it and around and around as it spins. The Cotton reel makes it easier to hear as that it’s mouth with lots of spikey teeth on it.
J has got lots of other ideas that he wants to try – I will try and post them if not I will share some of them over on my facebook page this week.
