The glorious sunshine brings about the chance to explore all the different wonders, the bugs and insects, the smell of freshly cut grass, the shoots in the soil, buds blossoming on trees etc. Nature is wonderful and it's time to explore it with this great range of activities in Tuesday Tutorials Pinterest link-up.
- Wheelbarrows are a great miniature garden for children due to their size and the raised height makes it easier for them to observe changes. We've made a minibeast hotel in the past which is still going strong and riddled with wiggly worms and woodlice, and this herb garden is also a really cute way of utilising a small space.
- I'm sure we all used to make 'perfume' for our mummies when we were little; picking flowers and adding them to anything which could contain water! Along the same lines, I love this Spring flower soup, the garden is full of such wonderful scents at the moment so why not explore some sensory play?
- Small world play is wonderful, and this Garden of Eden windowbox is absolutely no exception. Love the giraffes in amongst the pansies, and the cutest Adam and Eve pegdolls!
- The Boy loves to explore the flowers growing (when I can stop him picking them for me!) and I can't think of a better way for him to learn about the different plant parts than examining them physically and then labelling them on this very fabulous printable. While we're looking at plants, here's a great list of 8 easy plants for children to grow.
The Tuesday Tutorials Pin Party Guidelines:
- Use the linky below to add the URL of your Pin or blog post. This will then be added to our Pintorials Pinterest Board. It must be an instruction post of some kind, e.g. crafts, recipes or learning through play opportunities. It can be old or new, and you can add more than one per linky but please don't repeatedly add the same thing week after week.
- By linking up your post, you agree to us using at least one picture if your post is featured in a round-up. Therefore please make your images 'pinnable', or it possible to right-click and save.
- Follow the Pintorials Pinterest Board. If you’d like to follow the four hosts too that would be appreciated; ET Speaks From Home, Hodge Podge Craft, Crafts On Sea and TheBoyandMe.
- Visit at least 3 of the sites pinned below and pin them to one of your boards. If you’d like to say you’re visiting from #Pintorials (or Tweet about the linky) that would be marvellous. Of course you can pin more than that if you want!
- Please either use the badge below, or give a textlink back as it helps to spread the word about the great range of ideas (and yes, it can be no-follow, I'm not precious!).
I can't wait to see all the creativity from everyone this week, please add your ideas below!
