  • Act out or animate the life cycle of a plant
  • Plant some seeds and watch them grow - keep a diary, email me some photos 
  • Paint a picture or create a plant/flower collage
  • Explore and recreate the artwork of Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Georgia O'Keeffe & Andy Goldsworthy
  • If you can, go for a walk to look for flowers or visit a garden centre
  • Write a poem about flowers
  • Follow a recipe to make a fruit or veggie snack
