Spring Garden Activity

Ages 3-5 years

Prior to the session, send your toddler out to do a spring scavenger hunt in the garden.

Start with a ‘show and tell’ session talking about what they found – and what you found in your own garden.

Read the story – My Spring Robin by Anne Rockwell.

If you don’t have the book, you can find versions on YouTube.

Read or play again, acting out the story using soft toys or handmade puppets.

Here are some of mine gathered from around my house (or put together using odds and ends)

 

 

 

Read these rhymes/poems and act out using toys:

 

Little Robin Redbreast

Nursery Rhyme

Little Robin Redbreast sat upon a tree,
Up went pussycat and down went he,
Down came pussycat, away Robin ran,
Says little Robin Redbreast, “Catch me if you can.”

Little Robin Redbreast jumped upon a wall,
Pussycat jumped after him, and almost had a fall.
Little Robin chirped and sang and what did pussy say?
Pussycat said “Meow”, and Robin flew away.

 

Wiggly Woo

Children’s Song

There’s a worm at the bottom of the garden
And his name is Wiggly Woo
There’s a worm at the bottom of the garden
And all that he can do
Is wiggle all night
And wiggle all day
Whatever else the people do say
There’s a worm at the bottom of the garden
And his name is Wiggly Woo.

 

Play the rhymes on YouTube and join in with some actions:
