Spring Day

My name is Georgie and I am a dancer. Today we are having a fun filled day learning about Spring. We will be doing some fun craft activities, planting some seeds and dancing too.

Cress Heads

In this activity you will need to do some preparation for growing your cress!

You will need a pot or or egg shell (make sure its cleaned out.) Place a piece of damp kitchen roll at the bottom, followed by a clump of damp cotton wool. Make sure there is at least a 3cm gap between the cotton wool and the top of the pot) and place around a teaspoon of cress seeds on the cotton wool and press them down.

Water your cress daily so that the cotton wool is always moist and leave in direct sunlight, after 5 days or so you should have some lovely cress!

Now you can decorate your pot/egg shell! Grab a pen or some googly eyes to stick on, and draw a funny face. This activity develops children’s understanding of growing seeds.

Flower Collage

We are going to make a fun and vibrant collage of different types of flowers to celebrate spring.

You will need a pot or or egg shell (make sure its cleaned out.) Place a piece of damp kitchen roll at the bottom, followed by a clump of damp cotton wool. Make sure there is at least a 3cm gap between the cotton wool and the top of the pot) and place around a teaspoon of cress seeds on the cotton wool and press them down.

Water your cress daily so that the cotton wool is always moist and leave in direct sunlight, after 5 days or so you should have some lovely cress!

Now you can decorate your pot/egg shell! Grab a pen or some googly eyes to stick on, and draw a funny face. This activity develops children’s understanding of growing seeds.

Rainbow Panting

For this activity you will need some paper, coloured paints and a pencil to draw out your rainbow.

Talk to your child about when we might see a rainbow. See if you can remember all the colours. Like Georgie, is there a rhyme you can think of to remember them? Have fun painting and creating your rainbow. This develops children’s creativity and their understanding of the world around them.

Spring Dance

Make sure you’ve got lots of space around you to learn this fun and uplifting spring dance!

Follow Georgie as she shares the moves to the song. This supports children’s physical development.
