They started off their VE Day celebrations with a red, white and blue bath.


  • Bubbly bath
  • Hand whisks
  • Red and blue balls
  • Ping pong balls
  • Red, blue and white mega blocks
  • Cups


To make the ‘white’ for their bath, they used some hand whisks to make some extra bubbles.

Then they added the other red, white and blue objects they had found.

Ioan and Finn set to work building, while Cian enjoyed pouring with the cups.

Cian’s going through a throwing phase, so unless he’s trying to throw toys out of the bath, or at somebody, I tend to let him try and get it out of his system.

DfES Early Learning Goals (2017)

Expressive arts and design

ELG 17 – Being imaginative:

Children use what they have learnt about media and materials in original ways, thinking about uses and purposes. They represent their own ideas, thoughts and feelings through design and technology, art, music, dance, role-play and stories.
