Is this the time of year when you become aware of all those things you never knew you never needed? Well don’t despair! Instead look to pass on all those items to a school or early years setting. Here’s some of my favourites that have been passed on to schools…

On the first day of Christmas, a builder gave to me…

A beautiful drainage tube for rolling

On the second day of Christmas, a parent gave to me…

A boat that was no longer fit for the sea

On the third day of Christmas, my old office gave to me…

An outdoor office (at Alfreton Nursery)

On the fourth day of Christmas, my empty wine bottles gave to me…

Lots of corks – gathered over a long time!

On the fifth day of Christmas, a fisherman gave to me…

An old net (thanking you in advance, Inverallochy School – I’m being paid in nets for my next visit)

On the sixth day of Christmas, a rock climber gave to me…

An old climbing rope

On the seventh day of Christmas, the grocer’s shop gave to me…

Some little crates (bread and milk crates are great too)

On the eighth day of Christmas, my attic gave to me…

Lots of material tucked away in a bag

On the ninth day of Christmas, a tractor gave to me…

tyre for play, painting and planting

On the tenth day of Christmas, my old bunk beds gave to me…

Lots of wooden planks

On the eleventh day of Christmas, a kind forester gave to me…

Lots of tree tubes which are short biodegradable guttering pipes

Love the creativity of this post. Isn’t it fun to re-purpose these type of items. I know my children love our large pipes.
I love the rope idea. Maybe in our future…..

At schools which use scrap materials at lunch time, the play is different every day. So you are right – the creativity is wonderful. All open-ended reources.
