The world isn’t divided into strict curriculum subjects, and taking something as simple as a flower can be a wonderful spring board into science, art and poetry. This week we’ve been learning about daffodils: investigating the parts of a daffodil, using them as inspiration for some spring art, and reciting daffodil poems.
Join me for an arts-based, creative, hands-on Spring Workshop. Over four weeks (and beyond) we’ll learn about nature, the seasons, and spring, inspiring and engaging our children to wonder, create and learn.

For today’s Creative Chistmas activity I’m sharing an idea to make a Christmas Tree for the feathered friends in your garden. Christmas is a time of year when we can really encourage children to think of others and give gifts to those they love. How about spending some time with your kids, giving thanks for the natural world and helping them put together a Christmas feast for the birds?
