At last Spring is here and with it my new eBook of low cost seasonal activities. It is filled with delightful books to share, activities to do, art to make and songs to sing. We also have a whole host of gorgeous festivals, play, baking and craft ideas too. You should be able to have creative fun on a budget all season. It costs just £1.50.

This is a spring version of a sticker chart! You simply make a tree to stick on your door out of brown paper or by painting a big picture of a brown tree. Make sure it has bare branches and looks very wintery.
