Curious Eyes

Join our Curious Eyes session on 14 August. There’s so much to notice when you stop and look closely.  Make some Curious Eyes, a learning tool which helps your child to look actively, as careful and focused observation are key science skills. 

Child-sized, and carried by them, Curious Eyes are a simple frame to look through which puts the learning in your child’s hands. When they stop and focus on something on your walk, in the garden or through your window, follow their gaze and talk to them about it. 

Name it, describe its shape and colour, wonder what it’s doing and why they found it there. Cut out the frame from cardboard and add playful details, like a zoom button. Act out these functions - zooming in to take a closer look. You could create a list of things to hunt for too. If you don’t have any paper or card, simply make your hands in to C-shapes and look through them. Decorate your own using our template, or print a Curious Eyes we have already designed. 

Share photos of your Curious Eyes designs and what you have spotted. Share a snap using your Curious Eyes with #ExploreAndTalk
