OH NO! THE MIDNIGHT RAIDER IS BACK. BE SURE TO KEEP YOUR GARBAGE CANS SECURE.
Some fun nature projects to work on over the summer holidays
a) Collect leaves from your backyard (parental supervision may be needed to make sure no plants are being endangered in this process). Remember that fewer is best as you can always return for more.
b) Stick 1+ leaves onto a piece of card
c) Use coloured pens and googly eyes and let your imagination dictate!
d) Leave to dry in shade (so leaves do not dry out, but glue does) before moving
