Friday 23rd October

Some Half Term activities you could have a go at:

 

Make natural art

Look for natural art materials. Collect fallen leaves, petals and sticks and use them to make a picture or sculpture. Please make sure you don't pick wildflowers, however, as they are important for wildlife and some are protected by law.

You could even use the objects as 'stampers' or paintbrushes - dipping them in paint and rolling, brushing or stamping them on paper to create interesting patterns and effects.

 

Write a story inspired by woods and trees

Get those creative juices flowing with a story challenge.

Choose one of the ideas below to write a short story about:

  • A tree has fallen in the woods
  • A character has gone missing
  • An animal is shouting an alarm call
  • There are some mysterious footprints to follow.

You could have a go at writing a story each as a family and share them together before bedtime.

 

Which one was the funniest?
