More ideas to help you think about the outdoors...

 

Spring is in the air. and with it comes new flowers, birdsong, butterflies, and hopefully some much-needed sunshine.

 

We can explore the wildlife on our doorsteps even as we have to keep a distance from other people. your social distancing with other people. We can become Nature Detectives, follow trails of mysterious smells, strange sounds and interesting textures. We can collect clues as we go for walks and make that an activity. Flowers, leaves, seeds, stones, twigs, shells and display them on a nature table back home.
