On Saturday the 6th October we took to the streets of Birmingham with a group of volunteers to take part in a Love Where You Live clean up eventorganised by McDonald's. 

Leading up to the event, we asked you to vote for an area of Birmingham that was in need of a clean-up. Votes came in over the course of a week and Temple Row was voted as the location of focus.

Last week we had some very exciting news. An email landed to notify me that I was a BRITMUMS 2018 FINALIST! I couldn't believe my eyes! Learning and Exploring Through Play was staring back at me from the finals list. Black and White! But what does that mean exactly?

It means that the work we do has been recognised and that in itself is a huge achievement! I feel like we have already won by getting this far!

I am always on the look out for new places to visit. Often Garden centres have lots of hidden gems that are perfect for children to have fun! From soft play, fairy gardens, miniature railways, animals and super large sandpits - there is so much fun to be had. 

Today I wanted to try somewhere new. I often find places to visit on Instagram. I always share on my instalive stories where we are so be sure to find us on there - Instagram @learningthroughplay8.

Nature Weaving

Nature Weaving


Nature Weaving - Forest School

Just before Autumn arrives we have been enjoying some Nature threading. After our Sticky Tape Nature Pictures, we have been inspired to stay on track with more Nature activities. There is still lots of beautiful blooms and foliage everywhere! It's hard to believe that before long lots of this will disappear, as plants and trees go to sleep for the cooler months. 

Before I go on to share how this activity unfolded I just wanted to share this:

I am a huge believer in leaving plants and bushes to grow for the bugs and bees. Some plants thrive when you cut weaker/dying blooms. Sometimes bushes have to be cut back to keep things neat and its at this time where this activity is a perfect one to do. I wouldn't ever actively encourage anyone let along children so go hacking plants and bushes down for crafts. 
Make sure you explain this to the children too. Teach them to respect the outdoors from a young age.
