We’re having so much fun exploring all the kids gardening activities we can come up with using chalk this week. Taking One Added Ingredient and introducing it to lots of different areas of play gets children thinking and imagining and creating. Using a material they are familiar with ~ in our case chalk ~ but adding it in different ways leads to all sorts of new play possibilities. On Monday I showed you how we’d use chalkboard paint to make some ever changing puppets, in our fairy garden and in a road map right across the patio. Today we’re using chalk in a treasure hunt that mixes in lots of language, maths and nature play too.
