Measuring the weather
Observe and measure the weather in your garden to show what the weather has been like over the Easter holidays in your area.

Have fun hiding some 'treasure' around the garden/house. Then draw a map of where it is hidden 'x marks the spot'. Add as many details/clues to your map, e.g. tree, shed, furniture, etc. Give your map to someone in your family and see if they can find the treasure. Happy hunting!
