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.
Get all the bits and bobs you can find (buttons, peebles, gems, pasta) and some frames or embroidery hoops and let the child create different images or scenes.
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.
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.

Start by going to a forest walk and gather sticks and some leaves on. Get a mix of sizes. Then form a skeleton with the kids and teach the names of the bones. Great simple activity to combine nature and lean about the human body.
