All you need is blue sky, clouds, a comfortable spot to lie down in you garden on a blanket and imagination.
Encourage children to observe the clouds, look for patterns and pictures. They might see a face, a sheep, a dinosaur, a flower, a castle. What do the clouds make them think of? Can they talk about and describe what they see? Can they make up a story with the pictures that they see?
Which of these birds can you spot in your garden?
You could make a chart to record which type of bird visits your garden and how many times you spot them.
You could try making a home for the birds. Why not try this idea...

Get some water, old pots, spoons, a whisk and scissors.
Perhaps you could make a journal or scrap book of what you see.
Fasten some pieces of paper together, then draw, paint, stick in and write about what you have seen.
If you go for a walk with your family, look carefully at the different colours around you.
Here are some ideas.
