Lego Bird Feeder - very creative!
From the birdspotter photo contest. A good reason to use your lego...if you need one.

Signs of Autumn
So amazed to find these mushrooms (or are they toadstools) growing so close to home here. Never , ever seen them before!

The scene looks like fairyland from a child's book or a piece of artwork, not from real life.

Although the weather is exceptionally warm and it really feels like summer, I see blackberries ripening, swallows gathering to migrate to warmer lands, leaves beginning to turn yellow and now these.... What signs of Autumn have you seen where you are?

Art for Children, but I think adults might like to try this one. 
These are prints from blowing bubbles with paint in, so long as you blow, not suck...

I love the mental imagery of this end of year piece...
 
School is nearly over for this academic school year. What better than to end the year than with a collaborative piece of art work.
  
A Bubble Mural is a great idea for teachers and  preschool leaders to do in the classroom with their present class before the year ends.

See how it's done here >http://goo.gl/c2g79k

So tiny! Hope that they survive when released into the wild.
 
Four Western Swamp Tortoises hatched at Australia’s Adelaide Zoo may be small, but they are extremely important to this critically endangered reptile species.  Read more at http://bit.ly/1gUNpKa and at +ZooBorns

With Halloween coming up shortly, this looks intriguing!

Maybe it would alleviate a fear of spiders as, after all, they are only plastic...

How to Make Garden Markers - do you like gardening?
Just with stones, paints and varnish you could make a set of these!

Easy to spot from a distance and great for children who are planting home grown vegetables, especially those children who have not learnt to read yet.  http://goo.gl/BiiLre
