Seed week

Our seed walk collection
Nine fluffy ducklings, oh my
Cicada shells

Unexpected and delightful things happen when you spend time outdoors with children. They play, they learn, they make their own 'fairy playground' from logs, they fall in ponds, they make discoveries, they get swooped by magpies, they meet friendly magpies, and sometimes, semi-wild wallabies allow the children to pat them. All of which happened this week.

We explored the richness and variety of seeds at our local pond, following the Exploring Nature with Children curriculum. We looked at seed dispersal methods and the parts of a seed, made seed art and collected seeds to observe, discuss and draw. Our nature table is now over flowing with all kinds of beautiful, clever seeds and the children are pointing out seeds to me as we go about our days.
