Going On A Nature Walk

Step 1: Collection

On Friday, I handed two cellophane bags to my kids and we took a walk.  They each began collecting small items from nature.  Jellybean was way less selective than Buddy. She also listened better to the instruction: "Don't dump your bag until I get a picture!"
 Look at all the different colors and textures!
Step 2: Observation (i.e. destroy)

Dump out the bag.
Wait patiently while Mom displays some of the different items for a picture.
Now really start to experience the different colors and textures by crushing, pulling it apart, throwing it up in the air, pretending that you have really big lips, etc. Whatever floats your boat.

 Step 3: Storage

If you have a hat, that is where the remains of your nature collection should go.
Have a Happy Day!

  1. My toddler and I takes nature walks (aka - walks around the block) every day. She loves to pick up flowers, rocks, leaves, etc. But I never thought about bringing a bag to collect these things in. I'm definitely doing this once the rain clears up in VA!

  2. Thanks for sharing this with us this week at the Sunday Round Up Link Party.
    See you next week,
