Fairy Garden

We love this idea, originally from letslassothemoon.com, you can make it anywhere, this garden is in a bucket. They can use their imagination and plant seeds or use rocks and other plants in the garden.

You could consider making the fairies yourselves, or just using lego/toy fairies/or toy soldiers.

The example in the picture below are all 'Red' - strawberries, cherries, apples, raspberries and tomatoes, but there are sheets for other colour groups ...

Identifying bare winter trees from buds and twigs We found this activity for the outdoors on Nature Detectives.
