This week we focussed on hospital and germs. Our germ activities are featured in a separate post. Kealan is 4.5 and Elyse is 3.
Dramatic play – I used Twinkl resources, our coffee table with cot mattress on top for a hospital bed and set out our doctors kit with real plasters, bandages, latex gloves and digital thermometer.
Art activities – Syringe painting
I thinned out some paint using water and gave the kids lots of colours and calpol syringes. After quite a while or squirting the paint they decided to rub the colours together and discovered they could use the end of the syringe for mark making.
Math activity – coloured water transfer. This invitation to play way very simple. Coloured water and syringes to tie in with our hospital theme. It took Elyse a few attempts to master the syringe but after that the spend about 30 minutes happily transferring and mixing to make new colours.
Math activity – making shapes and patterns using plasters. This was one of our morning table top activities but was not a hit with Kealan. Elyse gave it a good go but the plasters were hard to manage.
So that was all our hospital themed activities as this week was mostly focussed on germs (which I have written a separate post about.)
