My classes have always had a nature box of sorts.
A container filled with a wide variety of nature’s treasures for the kids to feel and discover.
You can make your own using a small basket and changing the items often.
You can encourage older children to collect nature items to place in the basket for discovery.
As soon as I entered Pick n Pay today i was confronted with the amazing new world of South African animal collectors cards.
The kids themselves love to hear the animal sounds on the app and sound reader.
I’m sure most of you were tempted to add that extra item just to make up the R150 to get your cards and how many of us bought that flour we didn’t need of the brand we never use for …you guessed it more cards.
The kids had card swop at school, the mom’s started swopping them online, auction and freecycle social media sites were abuzz with mom’s needing just that one number. Even Pick n Pay arranged in store swop days.
I tried to stop myself ….but the collection bug bit and we have bears first cards for his collection.
