Matching colored beads to the sensory dough is a great way to learn and reinforce colors. Don’t have any sensory dough, check out our bestselling all natural play dough.
2. Nature Scavenger Hunt
Why not enjoy warmer days by spending them outside? This activity is designed to foster creativity and appreciation for the outside world. Use this printout with items like “search for a special leaf” or “a beautiful view” or create your own.
3. DIY Bird Feeders
While creating the feeder is a lot of fun, it’s watching all the different kinds of birds come flocking for a snack that’s the real treat. This activity starts with a pine cone and you’ll need small bowls, bird seeds, peanut butter, and string. Bird feeders are best hung up near a window so you and your family can watch for new feathered friends!
4. Flower Painting / Stamping
This activity starts by gathering flowers from your garden, but dandelions and other wild flowers work just as well. Dip the petals into paint and stamp them onto a paper to make beautiful and unusual patterns. They make for cute decorations for the playroom.
