So much fun today.
Easter party number 3 😁🐣🐰🌸
The little adventurers enjoyed an Easter themed soft play session today. 🌸🌼🐰🐣
Lots of bouncing, sliding, jumping, taking turns, fun with friends, lots and lots of smiles and laughter. Perfect ☺️
Red Nose Day creations. Yum. 🔴
The Mayor of North East Lincolnshire came to visit us today. He talked to the children and helped them plant some trees at Great Coates village hall. He was very nice and made the little adventurers laugh on this rainy morning.
He thought all the little adventurers were very well behaved. ☺️
They were all very polite.
I’m super proud of you all. Well done. 👏🏼👏🏼
The little adventurers enjoyed a trip to the garden center today. They picked out some sunflower seeds. We all had fun decorating our plant pots and potting our sunflower seeds. We talked about what seeds need to grow. “Sunshine and water” We are very excited to see our sunflowers start to grow🌻
This afternoon we painted some pictures of sunflowers. Well done everyone, there’s some beautiful sunflowers on our wall now. 🌻
We all talked about growing some more fruit and vegetables. We’ve decided on tomatoes, runner beans and strawberries. 🍓🍅🪴👨🌾
We all had such a great day.
Thank you mini farmers club 🐷🐑🐓🐮🚜
Water play in the garden is always fun 💦💦
Pouring, scooping, tipping, mixing, transporting, sharing, making potions.
This helps develop our fine and gross motor skills. 🚰💦🪣
We spotted the blue tree on our walk today.
We talked about how important it is to have someone to talk to when you’re feeling sad/angry/lonely/confused.
The little adventurers agreed it’s good to talk about our feelings. “It makes us feel better”
Beach adventures today 🐚🌊🌅
We’ve all been talking about Valentine’s Day this week and who we love. We’re all very lucky to have lots of people who we love, “Grandma, Mummy, Grandad, Daddy, Nannie” and lots of other family and friends.
We made some special treats to give to our loved ones and we enjoyed reading the book
Love you always by Frances Stickley.
We all agreed it’s a very lovely book and made us feel happy. ☺️
Amanda’s little adventurers are all signed up for another Barnardos Big Toddle in June.
We all really enjoy the big toddle and love dressing up as our favourite safari animal.
It’s a charity that’s very close to our hearts, they do such amazing work with children.
The little adventurers are excited to be raising money for such a great charity. They’re very happy to be involved and will be bringing their sponsor forms home in April/May.
Let’s make this years big toddle roarsome! 🦁
We all enjoyed being mini farmers today at Nunnys farm.
We loved learning about all the different animals and we fed Dave the sheep.
All the little adventurers were very well behaved. I’m very proud of you all.
We are looking forward to next months mini farmers club 🐑🐰🐮🐷🐴
We’ve all had a very exciting January. Lots of great activities and adventures.
We celebrated New Year and Chinese New year. We had lots of trips to different groups and soft play, parks, woods and local walks to feed the ducks.
Our Forest school activities have been very interesting. We are learning about and naming all the different birds we find in our gardens and parks. We made bird feeders and hung them in the trees.
We’ve also enjoyed getting together with other local childminders and doing larger group activities.
We are all looking forward to our Nunnys farm visit next week when we will all be mini farmers. 🐷🐄🐔🐴🐑
Happy New Year from all of us here. 😁
An update on spaces available - we are full now until January 2025.

Thank you to all my amazing families for their recommendations and to all my little adventurers for keeping me so busy. 😊
Here’s to a happy & healthy 2023.
See you all tomorrow. ☺️
🎄🎁CHRISTMAS PRESENT APPEAL🎁🎄
We are collecting toys for children and other gifts for teenage children this year again.
We managed to help lots of families last year from the amazing donations from everyone.
We donated 10 presents, headphones, hair straighteners, speakers, toys etc.
If you have a (NEW) gift you think would be suitable, please can you drop it off with me before December 2nd. Then I’ll take them all to CARE, ready to be given out for Christmas.
If you need ideas as what to buy/donate, please message me.
Some of the families that CARE help, won’t get any other presents this year, so let’s help bring some Christmas joy into the lives of these local children and families.
Thank you in advance.
Amanda and all the little adventurers 🎁🎅🏼
One of our topics this term is - Helping people.
The little adventurers have been talking about why sometimes people need help and who we can help this month. We are collecting food donations to take to one of our local food banks at Sidedoor church.
Their stocks are running very low and they have alot of families who depend on them.
If any parents could possibly donate any tinned food/pasta etc, this will be greatly received. We will take this to them next week.
The little adventurers are excited to be able to help. 🙂🙂
We’ve all enjoyed a trip to Nunnys farm today.
Such a lovely place for the little adventurers to visit and learn all about the different animals up close.
Thank you for having us. 🙂🥰
Whether you’re listening to the birds, feeling the breeze on your skin or watching the sun filter through the trees, there’s no end to the benefits of nature.
Spending time in nature can reduce anxiety, lift your mood and improve wellbeing, so head outdoors to find a moment of peace this .

We’ve had lots of fun talking about Autumn.
What happens to the leaves and trees, 🍂🧡
the beautiful colours, farmers and harvest time, the different animals that hibernate and making pumpkin soup! 🎃
We are so lucky to have such beautiful parks and beaches to explore and we’ve made the most of these and the gorgeous weather over the last few weeks. Some great outdoor adventures!
Our Autumn exploration table has been a big hit today, leaves, feathers, pine cones, acorns, we talked about what was hard and soft.
As it’s Mental Health Awareness day, we also talked about what makes us happy and sad, we looked at our happy and sad faces in a mirror, we talked about the things we can do to make our friends smile and that it’s ok to want to be on your own and have peace and quiet sometimes. ☺️
Our classroom has no walls,
They are not needed to engage & learn.
This is everything we need……………………. fresh air, warm clothes, exercise, friends, outdoor spaces, natural resources = lots of happy, playing, curious, learning, free range children. ☺️
Happy birthday to us! 🌈🥳🎂
I’ve been childminding 15 years today. 😍🎉
I’ve had so many amazing children through my doors, it’s been a pleasure watching them all learn, thrive & grow here.
I couldn’t think of any other job I’d love as much as this.
I do feel truly blessed to wake up happy and enjoy my job everyday.
Thank you to all my lovely families, past and present for trusting in me with their precious little humans.
I’ve loved every minute. 🥰
Here’s to 15 more happy years of Amanda’s Little Adventurers🌈🍄🐞💦
One of our friends Tallulah is in the final few.
If you have the time could any of my little adventurer families click on The Paintbox post and vote for her please.
Tallulah is the baby girl. I’ll put her photo in the comments below.
Thank you everyone. 🥰🥰
The little adventurers love our Royal family display. We’ve been talking about our new King today. The little as adventurers remembered he was called Charles.

We spotted ducks, pigeons & magpies 😊
Our Turtle Bus is all ready for Autumn/Winter now with the new raincover. 🍂🍁💦☔️💨

The little adventurers enjoyed a walk to our local pet shop to buy some fish food for our fish. We enjoyed seeing all the tortoises, rabbits and fish.
We were very quiet when we got home and fed our fish so we didn’t scare them. 🤫
Lots of great counting today. 1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣4️⃣5️⃣
Well done everyone 🐟☺️
After the sad news of the passing of our lovely Queen on Thursday, we will be doing lots of activities this week about The Queen, celebrating her life and the Royal family.
We are all making some thinking of you at this sad time cards to send to Buckingham Palace.
At times like these, children have lots of questions about people passing away and where are they now, we will be reading some age appropriate books about passing away and having some gentle conversations on the subject.
Everything will be age appropriate to try to help everyone have a little more understanding of what has happened.
‼️15 hour funded place has become available today.‼️
We can take 2 or 3 year olds.
Please message for details. Immediate start available. 🙂🌈🐞
Todays the day. 📚🌈
Good luck to all my little adventurers starting big school today. I know you’re all going to be amazing and I’m so proud of you all.
Enjoy your first day. 🙂 x
📚Read 5 books everyday📚
We all enjoyed one of our favourite books after lunch. The Gruffalo.
We read 5 books everyday here at Amanda’s little adventurers, the same 5 books for one week, then we change the books the week after to 5 different books.
This way the children get to really know the books, they get to know the story and the actions, they can start to tell you what happens next.
We all enjoy books and reading so much.
The little adventurers always help choose our 5 books for the week. 📚
Our 5 books this week are………
The snail and the whale
5 little pumpkins
Oola the owl
‼️Update on spaces available‼️
We are totally full now until September 2023, then spaces will be very limited. 🐞🌈
Our new uniforms have been delivered.
I’ll send all your orders home with your little adventurer this week 🐞🌈
Next uniform order will be going through in October. 😊
