As the bees start to buzz and the birds start hopping about, I’ve noticed a whole slew of delightful bloggers sharing wonderful nature-based activities. Just in time for summer vacation too. Here’s some of my favorites:
This Miniature Fairy Herb Garden from Sun Hats & Wellie Boots absolutely stole my heart. Looking for a creative planting activity for preschoolers? How about creating your own mini fairy herb garden! These are actually great for any age, & a neat way to encourage an interest in plants & caring for living things, as well as exploring creativity & design.
The month of May is over, but this MayPole Dancing from Home to Run a Home Daycare could be great for any month! How cute and creative is THIS?
Play*Create*explore had a delightful and timely idea with their Dinosaur Garden activity.
And The Craft Train reminds us that sometimes just a simple walk in the woods with kids is fun, relaxing, and educational.
