Each child will need paper, a clipboard or cardboard to write on, and a pencil or crayon. Have children spread out in a comfortable area and write stories, poems, or descriptions of what they see.
*Make clipboards from recycled corrugated cardboard and a butterfly clip.
You will need a tennis ball and empty Pringle’s can for this game. Children bounce the ball and try to catch it in the can. They can place this game by themselves or with a friend.
Ants on a Log
You will need celery, peanut butter, and raisins for this project. Cut celery into 4” sections to make your “logs.” Let children spread peanut butter “mud” in the logs. Place raisin “ants” on the peanut butter.
*For children with nut allergies substitute cream cheese “snow” and use ladybug “craisins.”
