The Tigers were extremely excited to be back to school and to have their warm-up “Getting to Know You” week. They familiarised themselves with their surroundings and started to form new friendships. They prepared beautiful hot air balloons to symbolise reaching new heights of their knowledge. Introducing Tiny Tigers to the magical world of hot air balloon crafts is a fantastic way to spark their creativity, develop fine motor skills and ignite their imagination. Additionally, this activity is great as a sensory play activity too, as children are touching and moving around. Children loved this activity and were motivated to decorate their hot air balloons. They explained their experiences seeing these objects in real life and their favourite colours and art materials. When displayed on the bulletin board, they happily pointed out their wonderful artwork and proudly showed them off to their new classmates.
