The Buttercups Big Spotacular!

At Buttercups we try our best to help charities, especially charities who support children. Last week we had lots of spotty fun raising money for Children in Need with our Big Spotacular.

We made Pudsey biscuits at our spotty fundraiser!

In preparation for the day, the Pre-school children decorated lots of Pudsey bears to display around the nursery. We drew around circles to make Pudsey’s head and made his bandage from some paper. Then we used blue and purple paint to decorate the bandage with pretty spots.

We carefully cut out shapes from paper for our display

On the big day we took part in lots of fun Pudsey and spotty themed activities! We created some beautiful artwork and played exciting games together.

Preparing delicious food together

The children at Buttercups are brilliant at baking, so we decided to make some delicious Pudsey biscuits. We rolled out some dough and used cookie cutters to make the shape of the bear’s head. When the biscuits were ready, we decorated them together.

We also made some amazing Pizza bears with tomato, cheese, ham and sweetcorn. We carefully placed the toppings on pizza bases before our Nursery Chef put them in the oven.

We had a teddy bears picnic!

The Tweenies brought in their very favourite teddies so they could join in the fun too! We had a lovely teddy bear’s picnic together. Everyone knows that teddies love apples, so we cut some up into chunks and fed them to our cuddly guests.


Even The Gruffalo came to the party!

A huge thank you

We’d like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to our parents and carers for dressing the children up in such lovely spotty clothing and for making donations at the nursery. We all had a lovely day!
