What's On Our Shelves For Our Construction Theme

We are using this Unit and also these trays:

A transferring activity- using these coloured plastic ice cubes ( not frozen)

transferring them onto a truck with a teabag strainer/tong

Transferring black beads (rubble) to the truck with lemon slice tongs

All ready to deliver, off we go.

 Sorting nuts and bolts by size and shape. Matching them up and making pairs.

Sticklebricks from Charity Shop

Ordering diggers set 1-20 downloadable from Sparklebox here

Pin pushing pictures of diggers/tools self drawn.

We are also using toy pigs to tell the 3 Little Pigs Story
inspired from Structured Play here. She has some nice construction ideas.
