Nature crazy hair game
Super simple ideea for nature walks. Cut a face out of cardboard then add hair from natural resources. Do not harm plants. Just place the face wherever you want to take the photo. Have fun and plenty of storage memory.
Spray paint impressions
Get some spray bottles and fill them with water and paint or food colouring. Get leaves, plastic objects, cookie cutters or anything flat that you don’t mind coloring. Place them on some bloating paper or kitchen towels and spray from a distance. You will get negative impressions on your paper.
Treasure digging in sand
Hide some nice glass beads, gems or any shiny loose parts and coins in wet sand. Use tools like colanders, kitchen tongs, brushes and other bowls. Let the gold digging begin. Do make sure to put covers on a good portion of your floor or get this done outside in the sand pit.
Make a DNA model out of candy and toothpicks. Warning: kids might eat more than their daily ratio. Explain what DNA and teach them about its structure and sequencing.
Water cycle in a bag
Another activity from Sophie’s homework. Easy way to learn the cycle of water and its stages by putting some water in a sealed bag close to a source of heat (sun/radiator). Learn about evaporation, condensation and precipitation using this small microclimate.
Go outside and make a mud mountain. In the middle put an used can and put half a tub of baking soda and some colour powder/pigment. When ready pour some vinegar in and watch it erupt.
