Nature Art:

Collect treasures (leaves, flowers, twigs and sticks) to glue down and make some creative pictures from your time outside.

A laminated picture of your clinician should have been mailed or delivered to you. Take your flat clinician with you on some outdoor adventures and take some pictures along the way. 

Science

Paint, water, cotton balls, and glitter...see what happens when you add them together in this experiment making galaxy jars.
