Spring activities

We are the proud custodians of two bantam chicks and the children have had so much enjoyment from them. It's been a great way to teach them to hold things gently and for them to learn about instinctive behaviour. These chicks have not seen a mother hen eat or drink and they know exactly what to do. We've enjoyed the process so much that we're incubating another batch from Monica's chickens.
We've also started making our own bread for snack time so this is an activity on the shelf and growing our own sprouting seeds is working well too.

We've managed to get some planting done too, in between the wind and rain, so sunflowers, strawberries and beans, so far. Our tomatoes wilted very quickly so we'll have to start again there.
We've also sprinkled some wildflower seeds for the butterflies that we are growing from baby butterflies. The worm eggs are yet to arrive. 
It's been a great time to do the lifecycle activities in model and 2d form with living examples around us.
