Plant some seeds for Summer flowers
This is a great way for children to learn about plants and their life cycles. You don’t need any fancy plant equipment. Take a look here to see what to plant in each month.
There’s also lots of Spring things to make and do at CBEEBIES including Spring Crafts and you can watch how Ranger Hamza and the Ramblers discover how seeds play such an important role in the environment – Watch Here
Make a Spring nature display, tray or box.
On your next trip to the park or on your way to school or nursery let your little one collect some of the things they see and bring them home to examine. Look for: different types of leaves, sticks, stones, flowers and if you have a magnifying glass they can explore the natural world in a whole new way. Add any toys that might represent spring such as bees, butterflies and bugs. This one from the Imagination Tree is a great example. If you don’t have a table you can make a nature box. It’s also excellent for sensory play
However you explore spring have a great time!
