Nature Adventures with a toddler (and beyond)…
Join Sarah on her quest to keep her toddler entertained in her garden and home, with nature as the inspiration, and with fun (and a bit of learning!) as the goal. Oscar is 2 and ½ years old and will test out these simple and easy-to-do-at-home activities; They will let you know the results, and would love to hear how you get on, too. All the activities are simple, use mostly things you will find in and around your home, and will be free, and will hopefully help to keep you both entertained (and sane!) a they have done for Sarah and Oscar. Enjoy. See here for Sarah and Oscar’s activity blogs!
