Some fun ideas to do with your little ones at home for Halloween 🎃👻

Halloween is coming! 🎃💀🎃

Check out our Halloween page for tips and ideas on all things Halloween 👻 We’ve got you covered for hassle-free homemade costumes, spooky crafts (that just need paper!), freaky food and more ➡parentclub.scot/articles/halloween

If you are back in party mode, remember it’s still a good idea to limit the number of children and parents you invite and to avoid playing games that involve too much physical contact, just to be on the safe side. The more time you can spend outdoors the better, but if you need to be indoors make sure you keep the windows open for ventilation ✅

We took some time on Wednesday to remember those who are no longer with us & we talked about our loved ones who we miss dearly and the memories we shared with them🤍.

The children and staff made wishes and put ribbions on the trees to send these to heaven to our angels & little city made a lovely memorial garden to honour the memories with have🎗🤍.

In loving memory of all our friends & families that we miss, we will always remember our angels👼🏼🤍.

Caterpillars have really been shown a interest in bubble experience this week with waterplay. I blowing bubbles indoors and outdoor to further this interest we provided the children with bubble wrap to our messy area allowing the children to create some beautiful art work using paint🐛

21/04/2021

Caterpillars showed a keen interest in our home corner recently to further this experience we provided the children spaghetti sensory for them to explore using their hands, pots and pans, spoons👨🏽‍🍳.

We loved this experience and we also made our friends laugh by placing the pots on each others heads 😂❤️

This morning butterflies and busy bees cohorts into one bubble, were we went on a exciting walk to our Easter Craiglockhart Hill Local Nature reserve. The children enjoyed the lovely walk full of bright coloured trees, flowers, birdies and ducks🌿🦜

After our relaxing nap back at nursery, we created our own pond full of “ducks, dinosaurs, elephants, stones and leafs. During this we discussed all the different animal sounds!! 🦋🐝

We hope you’ve enjoyed such a sunny day as much as we have here in butterflies and busy bees❤️

As we all know today is the year anniversary of the day we had to close and make drastic changes to our service for the safety of our families and extended communities...

As we mark this day I want to pay tribute to you our families, for your unwavering support and wonderful comments to pick us up when sometimes, honestly it became quite overwhelming.

Also to City & Little City Team, who have, as they have always done, worked so hard.
Working hard to keep our children, families and each other safe whilst still offering fun and valuable experiences for your children and keeping a sense of normality within the walls of our setting.
I’m so incredibly proud of them all and we in turn are proud and privileged that you chose us to care for your precious babies...

A year on light is at the end of the tunnel.. almost there.. 🎉
Thank you

Cara xx❤️❤️
