-Take a strip of card and run double sided sticky tape along it. When you get to the woods, remove the top layer from the double sided sticky tape. How many different coloured objects can you child find to stick on to the piece of card? Or even make a picture on the card with what you find. Can you make a face? Or a nocturnal animal?
- Did you know that the Elder tree doesn't just have delicious smelling flowers in May / June, the branches are also really useful. The centre of the branches is foamy, meaning that you can snip a bit off (use secateurs and gloves on any hand that isn't holding the tool. Cutting the diameter of a 5 pence piece is perfect) and push a biro cartridge through, making a pen. Then decorate the outside! Getting your child to write with it is even easier!
