Crafts: “A spring twig”

Crafts is very exciting and useful exercise for both two-year-old kids, and for older children. Children love tinkering, decorating and doing crafts with their hands. Modern materials offer tremendous opportunities for creativity.

While walking in the park with the children watch and discuss the changes that occur in spring.

 

The sun shines brighter, the air is getting warmer. Buds swell on the trees, soon the trees will get the new green leaves. Some trees are already blooming.

1. A twig with swollen buds.

2. Shapes of flowers and leaves.

3. Beads, stickers, stones to decorate flowers.
