Me and the girls are super lucky to be ambassadors of the wonderful willow and wild box children’s activity pack.
We are always super excited to receive it in the post every month and love to get stuck in with the activities.
This month we have been busy again using all the stuff in this months pack. We have been making a broad bean sprout house, pressing flowers, foraging for berries, planting calendula and much much more!
The first thing we did was building our sprout house, Callie absolutely loved it and managed to make most of it herself with a little help from mummy with the scissors
Everything you need for each activity is included in the pack, the only thing you may need is scissors.
Next on the list was looking for flowers and petals in the garden to pick so we could press flowers to make some window hangers. Having a look in the garden we found some violas and sunflower petals, Here are some pictures of Callie pressing flowers and having a look at them after a week of being left between heavy books.
We are currently pressing a few more flowers, once these are ready we will be using the kit in the box to make window hangers. We will do this by putting the presses flowers onto sticky back plastic and folding them over to make little window hangers.
We still have time to sow some lovely calendula flowers so we have done them today and popped them in the greenhouse to hopefully speed up the germination process.
Callie absolutely loves edible flowers and can’t wait to try these to see what they taste like. Edible flowers are super fun for children and a great way to get them trying new things to eat.
Sowing seeds is a great way to use fine motor skills.
These wonderful letterbox subscription boxes are a great way to fill time during rainy afternoons or to do outside in the sunshine and can be a great after school activity. They are a fabulous way to get the children involved with gardening and nature.
We can’t wait to see what’s in next months pack!
Lots of love Kirsty, Callie and Mila x
