Children set up their own hair salon and took it in turns to style each other’s hair during a fun filled roll play activity at Bright Horizons Nursery on the Green in Frimley Green.
To create a convincing look for their hairdressing salon the children created their own props for the role play using old cardboard boxes and tubes, tissue paper and paint, they also involved their parents by asking them to save any old shampoo bottles. Once the salon was fully set up the children got to work and had great fun washing each others hair and using their fingers as pretend scissors to create desired designs.
Afterwards, the children discussed what their hair looked like and painted their own portraits using a variety of different coloured paints and materials.
Lynsey Gardner, Nursery Manager, explained: “Role play is important for the children to learn to understand about the world around them. It helps the children to develop their knowledge of a topic and their imagination. Here at Bright Horizons we enjoy creating environments where children can learn through imagination, creativity and play.”
