Activity 1: Listening walk
1. Walk around outside or your house using a stick of your choice as a beater, tap different objects and listen to the sounds they make. Can you make loud sounds and quiet sounds? Short or long sounds?
2.List the objects you tap or take photos of you tapping them!
3.Attach some cotton wool or tissue to the end of your stick- what happens to the sound?
Activity 2: Can you make sensory number sticks? You will need 5 sticks, one stick for each number (1-5). Then add stones, pinecones or any materials or resources you find onto your sticks. For example stick 1 will need 1 stone, stick 2 will need 2 pinecones etc.
Activity 3:Make your own wreath like this photo using sticks and whatever you can find to hold them together (string, cellotape, hair bobbles). Be creative dip them in paint or glitter to make yours stand out from the crowd! Add flowers/leaves for some extra wow!
