Spring is happy time of year! Get out there and explore with your children and catch their excitement!
Things come alive in the spring … birds busy building nests, plants sprouting new leaves and flowers, children exploring things that have been hidden for a few months. Children love to walk in a gentle summer rain, run through puddles, and discover all the new things growing from the ground. Providing children opportunities to explore their natural surroundings not only encourages a love of nature but helps them develop inquiry skills and higher levels of thinking.
Through hands-on activities, children explore spring by:
- Using mud to write letters, names and words
- Making mud fossils
- Creating a ‘living garden’ display
- Developing balance by walking a ‘garden row’
