A real winner with children and most adults!
You will need
Large potatoes; tea spoons, spent matchsticks, cotton wool, cress seeds, water proof marker pens.
Wonderful for all groups, and children love this, it’s a great sensory activity and can be enjoyed by all.
Length of activity: 30 mins – 1 hour
Large plastic bowls, wooden spoons, gloves (the latex free medical ones work well), lard, bird seed, oats, left over mince meat or dried fruit, and aprons, old fruit nets (the kind often found around oranges or onions), old margarine tubs or small yogurt pots, or empty half coconuts with a hole cut in the top for hanging, string and scissors. (Washing facilities or wet wipes are also useful, this can be messy play!)
