Daffodil crafts and activities

It feels like a long time since we have done any themed activities and I have been putting this one off for a couple of weeks in the hope that some spring sunshine would emerge. It hasn't, but the daffodils are blooming nonetheless in the garden so I thought we had better get on with our related activities!

We used this sheet to draw our own daffodils. I don't have much artistic skill and I was really pleased with mine. Harry was very proud of his too and he did try hard to follow each step and didn't want any help.

We made some clothes peg daffodils with felt. We painted the clothes pegs to act as stems and I cut out felt which we glued into place to create a bright indoor bunch of blooms.

We have been following a Nature Detectives activity this week to create rainbow daffodils. We mixed food colouring with water and placed the daffodils in. We recorded how they looked after 24 and 48 hours. The green colour gave a really nice effect, but the black didn't seem to be well accepted by the daffodils as they went really droopy and didn't take up any of the colour at all.
