Minnie wanted to make a rocket... here’s how we got on. Our tools for this activity were recycled ribbons & thin sticks
Minnie helped to push the sticks into the ground to create a (rather abstract) 'rocket' shape.
Sometimes you had to weave yourself in & out of the structure along with the ribbons!
Once Minnie had finished her rocket it was ready for coutdown! '5, 4, 3, 2, 1...'
I love how she covered her ears as her rocket blasted off'.
The day before Minnie had been reading 'Whatever Next!' by Jill Murphy so I'm guessing this may have had an influence on her play this morning. ;-)
By the end of the morning the wind had blown most of Minnie's weaving from the wooden frame, but we thought it still looked so pretty blowing in the breeze.
We're looking forward to more of Minnie's creations adorning out little garden soon.
