Play, Laugh and Learn Celebrate the Seasons by Lynn Huggins-Cooper


Play, Laugh and Learn Celebrate the Seasons by Lynn Huggins-Cooper

Our memories of childhood follow the rhythms of the seasons - colouring hard-boiled eggs at Easter time, shell collecting and rock-pooling in the summer, carving fleshy pumpkins for Hallowe'en, and making glitter-spangled cards for Christmas. This book offers you a chance to build those memories with your own children. The essence of the passing seasons is savoured and captured with a variety of fun-filled indoor and outdoor projects - most created out of non-specialist and readily available materials. The activities have been designed to keep pace with your growing child's abilities and some will even provide precious mementoes of childhood that you will want to keep forever. All promote knowledge and a sense of discovery, whether of the natural world or a child's artistic and academic talents. These exercises also develop and extend fine motor skills and an aesthetic appreciation. Each activity is photographed step-by-step to help you achieve a pleasing and successful result every time.
