The children love to build with the construction toys we have at nursery - duplo, stickle bricks and lego. But they have recently had lots of fun with just card board boxes, tubes and reels.
We have had lots of interesting constructions and often they will go on to use what thy have built in imaginative games. We have had pirate ships and walking the plank, rockets to the moon, drums with purpose built stools lots more!
There has also been lots of maths; talking about size and measurement, making comparisons and exploring 3d shapes.
The children have also been able to share their knowledge and experience from home. One little boy said the reels were weights and demonstrated how to use them - then everyone wanted a turn at being a bodybuilder!!
