What a magical morning 🥰
We just love our job so much, Christmas is so magical through the eyes of children ✨️ 😍 ❤️
Today we visited Santa's real reindeers, there were so many.
Christmas music was playing as we bought the special reindeer food to feed the reindeers so they can fly on Christmas Eve.
The children giggled with excitement as the reindeer licked the food off their hands 🤣
We had the whole paddock to ourselves, we even chased a few chickens 🐔 😂
Once we had finished feeding the reindeers we washed our hands and used hand sanitizer to make sure our hands were clean again

We also made some rainbows 🌈 we used glue and coloured paper to stick onto the rainbow.We talked about the colours.
On the wall was different coloured paper and the children had a sticker sheet each to peel the coloured stickers off and match to the coloured paper.

Today we did some observational work as we cut open a pumpkin 🎃 The older children gathered around the table as Linda cut open the pumpkin, we talked about sharp knives and that adults must only use them and the children said if they used them they may cut themselves.
The children said there were seeds inside .
We placed the pumpkin on a table with the lid off for the children to scoop out and explore.
The younger children enjoyed touching the inside of the pumpkin and feeling it.
The older children put the seeds into pots and counted them too.
Just before lunch we read a story that one of the children brought in to share with their friends 😀
