Activities

Gardening

Why not do some gardening together? Plant some seeds or flowers and spend the year watching them grow. Look at the green grass on the lawn. You could plant vegetables or even fruit and eat them once they're ripe. If you haven't got any outdoor space, you can still join in with indoor gardening, growing flowers and herbs. The BBC website has plenty of ideas and advice for gardening with children here.

Rhyme

Ten Green Bottles

There are ten green bottles sitting on a wall,
Ten green bottles sitting on a wall,
But if one green bottle should accidentally fall,
There'll be nine green bottles hanging on the wall.

There are nine green bottles sitting on a wall,
Nine green bottles sitting on a wall,
But if one green bottle should accidentally fall,
There'll be eight green bottles hanging on the wall.

Keep counting down until...

There is one green bottle sitting on a wall,
One green bottle sitting on a wall,
But if that one green bottle should accidentally fall,
There'll be no green bottles sitting on the wall.
