It is time to get outside
and enjoy the beautiful Spring weather. These 3 activities will be
loved by the children.
Kids love planting things and with
this project you can plant seeds or go buy flower plants to put in
pots or flower gardens. All you need is the seeds, plants, potting
soil and pots to put them in. Don't forget to water them.
Bird Nest Supplies
Let the kids stuff small strands of yarn, colorful ribbon, twigs and
hay inside a net bag that onions or oranges have been in and then tie
to tree branches for the birds to get and use in building their nests.
The kids will be so excited when they see a piece of ribbon they
supplied for the nest.
Nature Scavenger Hunt
This is so easy and fun to do with the kids on a nice day. I simply
made a list of things to look for outside and let the kids go. Of
course, for smaller children you will have to read the list to them
and help them find the treasures.
Some items to put on your
list could be:
The scavenger list possibilities
are endless and will be different depending on where you live.
I just put about 10 items on our
list and that way we get to have scavenger hunts more often and look
for different things. This helps children look closer at nature and
appreciate it more if they are outside on a regular basis.
