During a recent study of the letter G with my three-year-old during our preschool time, I was thinking about a fun way to explore the color green. A scavenger hunt nature walk turned out to be perfect for this time of year. With so much of the world around us turning brown because of autumn and the drought we’ve experienced, green is harder to come by around here than you might think. So we set out on a short walk to find as many greens in nature as we could.
You’ll notice as the walk went on, green in nature was replaced with just finding green things. I think the downfall started with the hay bales! 🙂
Walks like this one will be highlighted in our upcoming preschool nature study curriculum. I’m not sure when you should expect it, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted as the time draws closer.
Oh, and watch for a post soon about the Nature Study and the Holidays walk we took this week looking for red and green. My big kids went along this time and had just as much fun as the preschooler did! Scavenger hunts are so exciting, aren’t they?
