I am planning the weather in January and have split it up into rain, wind, snow and sun

Have sorted most of it but am looking for something for the sun (outside of craft and a picnic).

Have you done this topic and if so, any ideas? My little ones range from 20months to 4.5 years.

Sorted it - we are doing sun catchers from activity village.

Sun catchers are a lovely idea.

Windmills are good too. My mindees all LOVE windmills :)

Debbie, your idea about sun catchers sounds good but I can't seem to find it on the activity village site.

Could you point me in the right direction.

Thanks :)

Hadn't thought of that - why are the roses still closed - they would be gone here!

I like the idea of sun-catchers thank you, as my little ones are quite young and one disabled I think we will use some shiney coloured card that we have left over from Christmas decorations, also could be easier to use. That is two brilliant ideas, Australia day and sun-catchers, keep them coming please, can't seem to get my mind going at the moment:( :( :(
