Enjoying washing the cars at the car wash
Practitioners set up a car washing activity consisting of toys cars, play garage, sponges, and shaving foam. The children could wait to get scrubbing the cars with the shaving foam.
Practitioners asked the children what they were washing one child said ” An ambulance” This creative activity was an extension of a previous activity ‘washing the cars in soapy water,’ practitioners observed the children and enhanced their learning by setting up this activity. Finding ways to extend children’s learning is of top priority at Daisykins Nursery, as this helps children learn new skills. Practitioners use their skilful knowledge to scaffold children’s learning and help them reach their full potential
The children spent a considerable amount of time playing with this activity, they used their imagination and placed the cars in the lift on the garage and pushed the vehicles down the soapy ramp. Some children even took their shoes off and enjoyed exploring the texture of shaving foam on their toes.
