A mirror is great for exploring small, interesting loose parts.

Try painting clouds on the sky it is a terrific mix of sensory play and art.  The blue sky reflecting in the mirror provides the perfect surface for painting big, fluffy clouds. 

A mirror is a wonderful place for children to explore seasonal materials.  Try a  mix of natural and artificial items for the nature table.  The colours and textures are made even more interesting by the mirrored surface beneath them.

A paintbrush glides so smoothly over the mirror is lovely too.  This activity always keeps the kids busy and entertained for ages.  And when we’re finished, simply wash the mirror in soapy water and soft cloth and it  is ready for another fun day in the future
