Hot Lava Lines

Feilding Kindergarten


We added paper machine tape to the outside environment….with children calling it “hot lava lines”.

They were the ones that made the rules of the game….you only go under it….you can’t touch it…or you can go around it.

They’re using their entire body to get under it, which is challenging as the ground is still damp from the frost overnight and they don’t want to get wet or dirty.

It’s added a real sense of wonder for some, challenge for others, and of course confusion for those who are learning to cope with a small degree of change.

….and the environment is the third teacher, an awesome Monday morning here in Feilding.
