you will find heaps of stuff on the internet (for activities hon). You can sign up to nature detectivies and they regularly e-mail activities.

just use the garden/park this time of year. get a few bug pots and magnifying glasses and find ants, snails, worms and watch them. put some big logs/bits of wood down then turn them over and you'll probably find heaps of snails and bugs.

insectore have butterflies you grow from caterpillars, ladybird larvae or stick insects so you can watch them evolve/change at home.

have fun -my favorite kind of child interest :thumbsup:

we playing with a tray full of compost today, with plastic mini beasts and magnifying glasses.

IF it stops raining, we'll go for a walk around the garden and look for some bugs to put in the bug pots and watch for a while.

have fun x
