All About Me (2)

All About Me

To begin our All about me topic we explored looking at ourselves. We did this through looking at our reflections as we played. We first used mirrors to see and recognize ourselves particularly our faces. As we established our sense of self in the mirrors we enjoyed looking and pointing out the different features of our faces. We particularly enjoyed finding our nose and our friends and adult's noses. To continue this, we took part in a messy play activity with shaving foam. We used our hands and fingers to move the shaving foam around the trays to look for the shiny paper that we could see our faces in underneath. We also explored making marks in the shaving foam to resemble our different features that we could see when we looked in the mirror. We really enjoyed making circles and squiggly lines in the foam and getting very messy.
