October insects

We are desperate to keep an interest in the garden as well as free play.  So we are creating a special insect walk under the willow tree.  We want to make it magical and so have created a walkway up the tree under an arch and we want to say a little rhyme before we go into the area.  We have found all sorts of things in the garden we can use to make hides for the insects.  Look forward to discovering what insects use them over the winter.

We have begun to make marks on paper as a new theme for indoor play.  We are using coloured paper, pens, crayons, felts, paint and water.
