Leaves, Acorns, and Rocks, Oh My! Building a Nature Collection
Plastic bag, clear glass jars or small bowls, nature!
Children love to collect various items on an outdoor walk. Next time you go on a walk with your child, bring a bag with you. As your child collects leaves, acorns, and rocks, put them into your bag. When you arrive home, you and your child can sort and count the different outdoor 'souvenirs.' To begin a nature collection, give each different type of thing its own jar or bowl that your child can add to on future walks.
