Spring Outdoor Clay Art
Everything you need is much closer than you think & you don't find it in a shop! All is FREE & found outdoors in your local parks, forests, woodlands, gardens, nature spaces. So be mindful when you use it: only take what you need. Here we use clay found in the stream of a river flowing through the woodland area of Horsham. We collected twigs, feathers, leaves, stones, flowers while being mindful of texture, colours and shape. Finally we put them together to make a beautiful creation: a clay.

This spring, explore nature and its changes through all your senses with a focus on your sight and smell senses. With your child, transform yourselves into explorers as you step outside and start hunting for flowers. Lilac and lavender flowers come in different shapes, colours and shades which are captivating. But what is even more delightful is its fragrance: sweet, fruity and calming . Have a go and find out if that's true for you too.

Dandelion Magic is a free 20-second mindful outdoor activity that you can do with your child in the spring time. All you need to do is look out for some green patches of grass and spot the white soft bubbles spring out from the leafy grass. Once you spotted a dandelion flower, choose one carefully and gently bring it close to your mouth. Softly and carefully blow on it to see the magic unfold in front of your eyes.
