Use the mud-tastic Winter Colour Spotter Sheet to get the children outside applying their maths while tey connect with nature and have some fun physical activity. This is a fabulous task to help your children connect with nature and to also creatively look at darker and lighter shades, delving in a little deeper to colour.
Here are some top tips to apply colour while going outside to learn.
- Why not collect some of the items you find up and make an art picture afterwards. The Artful Parent Blog has some great ideas for this.
- Apply sticky back plastic to a piece of unused card and attach different shades of nature on there. Tear them up small and add onto it.
- Compare colors from season to season. What colours do we see more in Aurumn than Winter?
Remember there are many charities out there looking after our wildlife, it is time we all take notice and understand the importance of caring for nature. The RSPB, Wildlife Trust and Woodland Trust all play major parts in helping with this so do spend your time visiting their sites and doing your bit.
