The Ladybirds explored the messy play activity of cherry blossom tea. They used their senses to explore the natural material of cherry blossom flower and petals. Exploring the feel and smell of the flowers. The flowers were mixed with water and children explored the early mathematical concept of filling and emptying cups and tea pots as they explored water volume and levels of full and empty. Children manipulated the tea pots well, pouring water from once cup to another. Children were also able to take on early role play skills as they offered up tea to peers and practitioners for drinking.
