Tops Day Nurseries celebrate Roald Dahl day

On Wednesday the 13th of September children at Tops Day Nurseries celebrated Roald Dahl day.

At Tops Wareham, children took part in  a number of activities based on different Roald Dahl books such as, ‘James and the giant peach’ and ‘Georges Marvellous Medicine.’  The children used painted peaches to print with,  as well as making some magical potions using different things such as soap, sequins and coloured sand!

The children at Tops Bournemouth were inspired by the story ‘Charlie and the chocolate factory’ and used their imagination to make some pretend sweets out of playdough and different fuzzy craft items!

At Tops Portsmouth the children made cakes to celebrate Roald Dahls birthday! They also listened to a number of different short stories by Roald Dahl as well as colouring in different characters from Roald Dahls books such as the BFG, The Twits and more.

The children at Tops Parkstone also focused on the story ‘Georges Marvellous Medicine’. The children took part in messy play and science activities throughout the day. The children made a potion out of baking soda and vinegar and waited for it to explode! As well as this, the children drew around each other on some big paper and painted them to look like the Big Friendly Giant!

At Tops Newport children took part in a number of different Roald Dahl themed craft activities. The children made dream catchers inspired by the BFG, peaches out of playdough and painted a peach tree and made their own caterpillars.  These were all inspired by James and the Giant Peach!

At Tops Poole, children were also inspired by James and the Giant Peach as well as  Fantastic Mr Fox. The children and staff decided to dress as different insects from James and the Giant Peach for the day! They also made fox puppets out of wooden spoons

Across the rest of the Tops Day Nurseries family, staff and children had lots of fun dressing up as different familiar characters, reading stories and lots more!
