It was Elmer day in Welly Wednesday today. Elmer is a colourful patchwork elephant who discovers that it is good to be different. We listened to the story about Elmer, then we went outside to participate in a range of colourful activities. We made a patchwork pattern out of stickle bricks and blocks and even made a patchwork pattern out of biscuits and icing! We used our fine motor skills to stretch colourful elastic bands to see how many we could fit on a pinecone. We sponge painted Elmer pictures and we even painted bubble wrap and jumped on it to burst the bubbles and watch the paint splatter. What fun!
