First we got lumps of clay which we rolled into round balls.

IMG 0129

Then we squished them flat so that we could use the shape cutters to cut out the shapes we wanted.

After leaving the clay to dry for a little while we were able to begin painting them.

Once the paint was dry our Christmas decorations were ready to be hung on the Christmas tree.

This colorful, easy-to-operate, and friendly little robot is a perfect tool for teaching sequencing, estimation, problem-solving, and just having fun!

Hot Air Balloons:

We learned a new poem about hot air balloons and created some colourful art! 

'I saw a hot air balloon

flying over my house

most of the time it was

as quiet as a mouse.

but every so often its

burner suddenly roared

and higher up into the sky

it suddenly soared!'
