We are learning all about the letter J this week so following my children's interests, I set up a jungle provocation.
Clipboards and jungle related books encourage literacy skills.
The bamboo backdrop is a canvas print. I make use of this print in so many of my provocations.
The river is a strip of polar fleece. A lovely sensory touch.
Schleich animals are always a favourite and their authenticity encourages real-life play.
I surrounded the green carpet playmat (rug) with logs from my wood pile. The children loved exploring the different bark textures.
I purchased some artificial ferns and set them in plaster of paris. I covered the tins with natural printed adhesive contact.
I ensured the area was only accessible for one or two children at a time. This ensures quiet, purposeful play.
I also set up some cooking invitations at the sensory table. Some children chose to make jelly and some chose to make jam sandwiches. Of course, some chose to make both.
