The Daisies room Activities

Daisies Activities

Sensory play
Treasure baskets have a range of different textured, natural materials for the children to touch, smell or even taste. Sensory bottles filled with all kinds of colours, materials liquids and solids for them to shake and see what happens.

Ball pool, tents and tunnels
The children love to climb, crawl and hide using our tents and tunnels learning spatial awareness and developing physical skills. This is a very social activity playing alongside their friends in the ball pool and tents.

Messy Play
Includes Corn flour, Shaving foam, Dough, Clay, Flour and Pasta. Children can feel, move, stretch, pour, hold and squash these materials exploring and developing creative skills.

Soft play
A great and safe way for the children to develop their gross motor skills. The big blocks are soft enough to jump and play on and light enough for the children to move and even build with.

When using equipment, the children are learning to control tools to make their own marks on the paper. We also use fingers, sponges, feet and toys to make marks with paint.

We have blocks that fit together where the children can use their imagination to create something and blocks that stack on top or around each other which children love to use to make towers and watch them fall down. The blocks help develop colour and shape recognition and mathematical development when beginning to count.

Small World
Including small houses, people, animals, cars and roads developing skills and knowledge and understanding of their world by rein acting and imitating.

Cosy Corner
A place where children can take time for themselves to be quiet. Have a rest alone with a book, or with some friends. It is important for this place to be comfy using cushions and pillows so the children can relax.

Children develop fine motor movements and problem solving skills as they attempt sometimes successfully to put pieces into boards.

Role play
Providing opportunity for children to engage in imaginative play with others and to develop their understanding about the world, through copying and modelling their own experiences.
