It might be cold outside, but at Nursery we still go outside every day.
Being outside is a great way to learn about the seasons and notice the environment.
Here are some ideas you could try at home. We will be doing lots of these in Nursery too!
- Make simple bird feeders with cheerios and string. Hang them in the garden and watch to see which different birds (or squirrels) come to feed on them. Stringing the cheerios is a great way to develop your child’s fine motor skills!
- Leave water outside. Talk about what might happen to it. If it turns to ice-look at the patterns, smash it, play with it. This is great science!
