Out and About
Nighttime adventure
If you don't need to get up early, how about you explore the your local area at night. What can you see and hear? What is different from being out and about in daytime?
Our Planet
Seed bombs
Mix ten handfuls of compost with one handful of seeds and one handful of flour. Then add some water and use your hands to mix it together. 
If it's not sticking together try adding more flour. Then bring the mixture together and make into balls. Leave in the sunshine to dry. 
Finally, choose where to throw the seed bombs. It could be in your garden or perhaps an area of grass near you that needs some flowers. 
Bird Watching
Chris Packham has set up the Self Isolating Bird Club on Twitter. Whilst the roads are quieter, take the chance to listen to the birds. Perhaps you can identify some of the different bird calls? Research some of the birds who are visiting your garden.
Have you got any seeds sitting in your shed? Try planting some new flowers, or move towards self sufficiency and plant some vegetable seeds!

We will have reflection and prayer time too. The children are being encouraged to write some prayers for this. See Quiet Times section of website about how you can join in.
