Campfire cooking - imagination led play
Imagination and imaginative play sits at the heart of Pea. We know when children use their imagination in play they are developing crucial psychological and emotional capacities, learning to solve problems and developing new ways of looking at the world around them. This week's Adventure Club activity we've taken a pile of sticks and an old postal box and turned it into a campfire for some outside imaginative play.
Things you'll need
Paints for the campfire (Yellow, Orange)
Paints for the pan, flowers and leaves (Colours of your choice)
Cardboard sheets (Cut up postal box)
Step one (Building your campfire)
Collect your sticks and cut any to size that need adjusting.
Start with the Yellow paint.
Leave each stick to dry.
Once the Yellow paint has dried you can then add the Orange to finish.
Once the Orange paint has dried you can then stack your campfire logs.
Take your cardboard sheets to build the pan, flowers and leaves.
If you're using our template provided below, simply print it out and place the cut out shapes onto the cardboard, draw around the shapes on the card and cut them out. For the pan we doubled up the layers and glued them together for a bit of extra strength. You can draw your shapes directly on to the cardboard if you're not using our template.
Paint your pan, flowers and leaves in the colours of your choice.
The campfire is now complete
