Spring Discovery 2012

Spring has sprung. Luckily today was a beautiful Spring day to discover about Spring.

This is the start of a collage spring sign. Soon to be covered with daffodils made from yellow and orange cupcake cases.

Our Mountaineers enjoyed using lots of fake flowers to make a Spring play-dough garden.

 This season spinner was tricky to make , but a lot of fun to use. The children discovered how we can look at the leaves on trees to figure out what season it is. It took some children a long time to colour, glue, and cut this spinner and I was impressed with the perseverance displayed by our 5 and 6 year old's in order to complete the task.

Tying tissue paper blossoms on these previously bare branches was a simple independent activity that encouraged the children to use their fine motor skills. We used twisty ties to attach the blossoms, but you could also use pipe-cleaners.
