Spending time in nature

SONY DSC

The temperature seems to be dropping down everyday and I can feel every degree of it! It almost feels like I can smell Autumn in the air and it feels like it’s just around the corner! …so we ve been taking advantage of the last few days of the summer and still mostly dry weather and we ventured out to a few forests and meadows over the past few days. Being close to nature is wonderful and it stimulates children’s imagination in so many ways. From finding ” a bouncy branch” on an old oak tree, finding slippery slopes to run down or roll down from, to looking out for animal foot prints and collecting different tree leaves. It makes children feel free.

heatherBeautiful heather, that we collected on one of our walks- it brightens up our kitchen windowsill.

…huh…with many outings…my crochet blanket has been growing quite sloooowly…but still growing :)blanket

 

Birthday Card simple craft for children

Granny’s birthday Part 1.

Upcoming Granny’s birthday is a great opportunity to put little hand and minds to work on some lovely hand crafted gifts. We started with the birthday card.

Zblizajace sie urodziny Babci-Granny sa wspanialym powodem by zajac male raczki i umysly czyms uzytecznym i wykonac mile niespodzianki. Zaczelismy od kartki urodzinowej.

I cut out circles out of a picture that Jonah painted yesterday, he then used glue stick to stick two layers of paper on top of each other and then he had a choice of buttons or sequins to stick in the middle of each flower (He used a stronger glue for the buttons). Then to finish off he used glitter glue. Quick, simple crafts are good for little ones, as soon as Jonah finished his card he was interested in the next “present” that we planned to attempt later on.

Z obrazka ktory Jonah namalowal wczoraj wycielam trzy kolka i przygotowalam rowniez trzy nieco wieksze kolka wyciete z rozowego papieru. Jonah przykleil mniejsze kolka na wieksze i nastepnie dalam mu do wyboru male guziki lub cekiny do ozdobienia srodkow kwiatka. Jonah wybral male guziki ktore przykleil do kwiatkow za pomocom niezastapionego “kleju magicznego” i reszte wykonczyl brokatem w kleju. Proste i szybkie robotki sa swietne dla malych dzieci. Jak tylko Jonah skonczyl robic kartke juz zainteresowany byl kolejnym prezentem z ktorym zaplanowalismy  zmagac sie nieco pozniej.
