We've been reading and learning about the rainforest so Nixie wanted to make a parrot and I came across this incredibly easy and super quick little paper craft project. It took no more than 10 min, the only part that was time consuming was cutting out her hand prints.
Fun projects & games while learning about Kenya: Mancala, Clay pots, Paper beads & Shisima & new recipes
This past month we've been learning lots about Kenya thanks to a few different resources. We've been making our own board games, clay pots inspired by the Maasai and paper beads. And have also enjoyed some vegan Kenyan recipes too!
We just finished up Snail week in Exploring Nature With Children and we did two different kinds of crafts which I'm sharing with you in this post. We created the sweetest little snails out of clay and also some really simple paper ones using just a variety of circle sizes!
A couple of weeks ago Nixie really wanted to learn about deer so we spent a couple of days researching which species of deer live in the New Forest and discovering a little bit about each one. No matter what we are learning about I always try to incorporate something creative and for this theme we did some paper craft and made a deer silhouette.
After finding our frogspawn last week I knew that Nixie would want to learn about frogs, so we've been doing a lot of frog related activites! We learn about them every year and what's amazing is that every year she takes in something new and her understanding of them grows in depth.
One day last week Nixie woke up wanting to learn all about Arctic wolves (pretty great timing too since the full moon this month is called the Wolf Moon) so after we had read through books and searched the internet for information and watched some videos and an amazing documentary it was time to do something creative.
