As we hop into spring, Keswick House Nursery in East Putney has come up with some fun eco activities that could entertain your little ones at home. Read and enjoy!
This activity not only teaches children how to grow food, but it is also quick enough that they will not become impatient, and it provides a yummy sandwich filling! All you need is a potato, cress seeds and cotton wool. Make a hole in the top of the potato, wet the cotton wool and sprinkle the cress seeds in - easy! Your child can then decorate the face, before leaving the cress to grow. This should only take a matter of days. If you don’t have potatoes to hand, you can use egg shells, yoghurt pots, or old plastic cups. Once the plant has grown, be sure to let your little one cut it themselves - it’s a fantastic fine motor exercise which will really support their scissor skills. Happy Growing!
