If you need help and resources for educating from home Twinkl is a really good site.  Some of the activities you have to pay for but a lot are free.  The free ones have a tab that says 'Free Resource'.  Take a look.

Bird feeder:
Why not try making a simple bird feeder out of a plastic milk bottle that you can decorate and put up outside your window and watch all the different birds come for their food? Take a look at Anna's bird feeder on the header of this section which she made during one of our virtual Day Opportunities sessions.
