Here are some simple and fun activities to do with the children this Easter holiday!
Complete a ‘colour palette walk’ and note down the shades and tones you spot.
A ‘Fruits of the Forest’ walk would allow children to collect stones, leaves and other special gifts from nature. You could even plan a ‘Treasure Hunt’ or an Easter Egg hunt where you could create a route together with your child and have a gift set up at the finish line for reaching your final destination!
Try and see how many different types of leaves you can find. These can then be taken home and pressed into a lovely spring scrapbook to which all the family can contribute. Write poems and stories inspired by the break.
Pack a basket full of your favourite foods and set out a blanket in your lounge or get out in the garden or park.
Construct your own statue using things found from mother nature.
Give something back to nature, whether it is something you have found on one of your holiday adventures or the seeds from your fruits Remember to thank the great outdoors for the fun it has provided you with over this break. Have a listen to the tracks below.
The Relax Kids Nature Meditations CD is a great way to finish off those busy days and relax your children and yet preserve their encounter with the great outdoors, in a productive, comforting way. https://relaxkids.com/product/nature/
