From printing with cauliflower florets to the ancient skills of weaving and feltmaking, this selection of simple projects has something for everyone.

Cauliflower craft 
The textures, colours and shapes of a cauliflower make a great inspiration for art - and children can also use cauliflower florets for printing.

Create a unique, miniature, felted landscape using wool fibres, a pebble and soapy water.

For more home education resources, go to the Countryside Classroom Home Education Hub. We will also be posting weekly blogs  highlighting a range of resources on a particular theme. All resources were originally written for school use, but are equally suitable for education at home, while following government guidelines on social distancing.

Do share what you are doing with us, and other home educators, at #CountrysideClassroom.
