This week’s theme is Spring. Spring is a great time of year to .
Take one picture a day if you go out for a walk or if you can have a look in a local outdoor space and create a ‘month book’ to see how things have grown in just a few days. Can you look back at them and recall what they are, where you saw them?
Hang easy-to-make square cloth bags made from old fabric on hooks on walls and fill them with pretty plants to make a lovely display (remember to water them as the weather dries out). Old boots and shoes, handbags and all sorts of discarded containers also make unusual plant containers – how creative can you be?
Make some chocolate birds nests- crush up cereal and coat in melted chocolate.
Collect some flowers and leaves and have a go at pressing them under some heavy books to create a picture.
There are lots of great Spring crafts you can do with these resources, finger painting, weaving, making an egg box daffodil, making a paper plate bunny. Maybe you could have a go a drawing a Spring picture in flour and see if your Mums and Dads can guess what it is?
Have a go at pressing some flowers or leaves into playdough.
Start saving your empty paper towel rolls. This is a great recycling project to teach children about reusable materials.
