Ready, steady, slow! See how we use SNAIL RACING to learn SNAIL FACTS. This is such a fun ANIMAL SCIENCE activity for the whole family to enjoy together and a great way for kids to learn about our slimy garden snail friends.
Here’s a fun challenge…can you build a nest using natural materials just like real birds do? NO GLUE OR TAPE ALLOWED!!! This “Make A Birds Nest” STEAM project is a fun way to challenge your kids and get them testing out their ideas and problem solving.
I love finding new and exciting ways for kids to engage with Nature, get creative and develop their motor skills and this All Natural Leaf Threading activity ticks all the boxes. Because it uses natural things it’s virtually free to put together and provides a wonderful sensory experience for kids to as they explore the sight, feel and smells of this activity too.
I can’t wait for you to see these DIY Leaf Luminaries, they are so gorgeous and so, so simple to do! Whether you have tiny tots or big kids this is a fabulous no-glue, no-mess must-do Fall craft.
Autumn is a wonderful time of year for kids to try “Painting with Nature”. This simple process art technique allows kids to explore and create textures and patterns in a fun, open-ended and hands-on way, creating unique and interesting art.
We sure do love getting arty with leaves! So many wonderful shapes, colours and textures to observe. This week we’ve been having a lovely time creating bold Charcoal Leaf Pictures. Charcoal is a super medium for kids to explore and the end results are just gorgeous.
We’ve got a fun boat craft for you that literally tastes of Summer! Yummy! Raid your fridge for some avocados and come and see how to make a little boat that really floats. Just perfect for imaginative play where small world play figures can go sailing around the wading pool or bath!
I admit it, I don’t always know what I’m doing and recently the kids and I have been enjoying some experimental crafty goodness making real flower suncatchers for the window. I wasn’t sure how successful our method of preserving the flowers would be but so far, touch wood, it’s all gone to plan and I just adore the vintage look of this unusual flower craft.
