Every week I will be posting a different outside challenge. They will be fun themed scavenger hunts with different things to find to keep you busy.
Try out the weekly scavenger hunt challenge below.
Can you do one every week and be a real outside explorer?
Twinkl Life Cycle Story Stones
Twinkl have launched a set of resources for making Life Cycle Story Stones. I have sent the link at the bottom of the text which will take you to the resource page- it has many different life cycles you can try such as a butterfly, frog, or a sunflower. I thought you could get really creative and even paint the images onto stones you find at home as a bit of Art Work to keep you busy! I have sent you some pictures below as a bit of inspiration to get you started!
An Idea to Celebrate Palm Sunday
Here is an idea that I would love all of you to try this coming Sunday. To celebrate Palm Sunday I am asking you to make a branch, however you like and put it on the door of your house or window. This will show people that, despite the social distancing, we are all connected as we prepare for Easter. The pictures below give you examples of the different Palm Branches you can make. For anybody who takes part in this activity and posts is on their class blog I will be awarding 10 j2 stars points as a creativity reward.
There are lots of different websites that you can visit to get some ideas for outdoor activities.
