This week in Jigsaw we are working in a slightly different way. We will be focussing on mental health, well-being and kindness.
We are going to make calm down jars this week – you can use any jar, and add some food colouring, glitter and some oil – it could be baby oil if you have it. Make sure the lid is on well and then shake and watch the glitter settle.
On Tuesday we are going to make some salt dough friendship/kindness tokens – this is an easy recipe – just salt, plain flour and water. Design a shape and then leave it to dry in a warm place. We are decorating them later in the week. Then we are going to be creating our own doddle pictures based on all the things that we love and enjoy! Make sure they are bright and colourful!!
On Wednesday we are going to create some worry dolls – don’t worry if you don’t have a peg you can just draw a person shape and cut it out – these are great to share any worries with – they work well if you tell them your worries before bed and then let them sleep close to you.
On Thursday we are going to be creating some collaborative art work using Jigsaw piece shapes as a template. Decorate them in any way you like, something that represents you and then keep it to bring in when we are all back to add to our whole class display!
Friday is when we will be sharing the love! We will be using Valentines day as our inspiration to create some cards and pictures to let people know we love them!
If you need some extra tranquillity then follow the links for Forest based meditation and yoga!
Remember to look on class dojo’s for daily updates and please remember to share any learning that you have done so we can celebrate your success!
