A morning with flowers and leaves :)

Last Thursday we had fine weather so after marketing, I brought Alicia downstairs with the intention to explore the flowers in our neighbourhood as part of the series of activities for teaching the letter F and simply for appreciating nature.
As expected, she ran excitedly to the playground immediately so my plan had to be shelved, or so it seemed.
It turned out that someone had plucked ixora by the bunches and left them strewn all over the playground compound so we still got to erm, spend time examining flowers. And in the end, I’m glad to say, Alicia’s attention was not so much on the playground than it was on collecting and examining flowers and leaves. 🙂
She ran round in search of more flowers and leaves that were on the ground and played with them in her way:
wow! flowers!
More flowers!
She remembered what she did the previous time with the ixora and I must say her fine motor skills have improved!

Going round in search of more flowers and leaves
Look what I found, mummy!
The tired gal in her pram – but still holding on to leaves…

We collected some of the flowers she played with for a follow-up activity… stay tuned! 🙂
