Learning about Nature at home
Spring into Spring !
Take a look at the PDF below which contains lots of practical, fun and engaging activity ideas. There are lots of suggestions, as well as useful facts. You may wish to dip into this selection, modifying and adapting them to your child’s interests and to your context. There is an overarching theme of spring but this is a catalyst and your activities could lead into all kinds of new directions. These learning opportunities are about shared experiences and about having fun. Nature activities may be limited to your garden, window box or a book but so many new skills and insights can be acquired. Be creative and utilise what you have around your home. Most importantly, have fun !
