Spring brings with it an abundance of bird song and new life. Wild flowers are emerging and carpeting woodlands, verges and meadows.
Cowslips are a beautiful yellow flower, similar to primrose in appearance but the flower nods in the breeze from the top of a stem
Using cotton wool, play-doh, paint and a twig from an alder tree the Reynolds boys were able to create a bit of the great outdoors, indoors.
1. Firstly make a basal rosette of leaves with the cotton wool and paint them green. This is a satisfyingly squidgy bit.
2. Place a lump of play doh under the middle of the cotton wool leaves.
3. Paint the twig green and the cone yellow.
4. Push the twig into the centre of the play doh/basal rosette of leaves.
Have a go at making an indoor wildflower and send us your pictures.
This is a great opportunity to teach words such as Petal, Stem, Leaves, Pollen, Anther, Stamen, Stigma.
