Tiny Treasure Hunt
Dish towel, a box, a basket, a shopping bag, toys, snacks.
Loosely hide some tempting objects in your garden for your toddler to find and investigate. For little ones, you might use bigger objects and give a few hints; older children will enjoy more of a challenge. Try a folded-up dish towel with some toys hidden inside, a box to open with a snack inside, an upside down basket to turn over and discover a favorite stuffed animal 'hiding,' a bag to look inside and find a toy. This is also a fun activity to do on an outing at the park -- make what has become commonplace seem like a brand-new adventure!
