The Ladybirds explored slime messy play. They used their senses to explore the texture. Running their hands through the slime and making marks using individual fingers. Slime was grasped in fists and children rubbed their hands together to explore the texture. New vocabulary was introduced such as 'slimy', 'slippery' and 'sticky'. Children explored the glow int he dark under the black light excitedly watching the effects of the slime in the darkness.
