Daily Activity 13: Daffodils

April 8, 2020

This week’s theme:

The Mysteries of Spring & Easter

Fact of the day:

Daffodils announce the beginning of the Spring and the waking of nature.

Resources list:

Worthsworth’s poem; youtube; yellow household objects.

Activity 1:

Read Wordsworth’s poem about Daffodils here.  In the poem he describes that Daffodils move by ‘Fluttering and dancing in the breeze’, ‘Tossing their heads in sprightly dance’ and ‘They stretched in never-ending line’. Dance like a daffodil to this very yellow song while fluttering your arms, tossing your head, and stretching your limbs as far as you can.

Activity 2:

In your garden, or out on a walk, see if you can spot any Spring flowers, take a smell and see if the smell reminds you of anything.

Activity 3:

Try some Spring yoga moves such as Flower Pose, Tree Pose, or Butterfly Pose.  If these are tricky, try some Chair Yoga and when you stretch up your arms imagine you’re growing and blooming like a flower. Try stretching whilst enjoying this seasonal song.

Activity 4:

A field full of thousands of Daffodils looks so beautiful, like a huge blanket of yellow, see here. Find as many yellow items as you can in your house to make your own tabletop ‘daffodil field’.
