This is a fun and educational activity for children of all ages, and can be played as an adventurous holiday project. Get your kids excited about nature because dirt is good – and every outing can be an opportunity for learning and discovery! Make sure to spend time at various outdoor locations, from a walk after a big Sunday lunch to a trip to the park. The more time that your little ones spend getting to know and love Mother Nature, the better!What to get:
- Coloured paper in an array of different shades
- A ring-bound scrapbook of thick paper
- Glue (Pritt)
- Pens and markers
- Digital camera or disposable camera
- A pair of scissors
What to do:
- Using a bug catcher, your kids can record the different types of insects discovered in their scrapbooks.
- Use a thick book and press different plants with tissue on each side to make sure that it doesn’t leave a mark on the pages.
- Take the camera along every time you visit a natural environment. You might get lucky and snap a few photos of the gorgeous local wildlife. Paste the photos in the scrapbook with a bit of glue and get the children to decorate around them using crayons and markers.
- Grab some old magazines and get your kids to cut out pictures to make collages of animals, birds, trees, planets, mountains, oceans and flowers to brighten up the book.
- Most of all, encourage your little ones to get creative!
