As soon as the sun starts to set there is a whole host of new and exciting things to discover and kids will love searching for a whole host of creatures, sounds and sights.
With this activity children will be able to get close to insects in a safe way that doesn’t harm the insects. It is important to be aware of any allergies children may have before starting this activity and always take care to avoid bees, wasps and other insects that bite.
The phases of the Moon depend on its position in relation to the Sun and Earth. As the Moon makes its way around the Earth, we see the bright parts of the Moon’s surface at different angles. These are called “phases” of the Moon.
In this activity your child can keep track of the phases of the Moon all year round.
It’s a great game to play outdoors in the garden or local park. All you need are a few torches and a few friends to play with.
This game introduces children to the concept of the sun moving – and it’s great fun to see their shadows grow to a giant in the afternoon!
