Nature Scavenger Hunt
You won't need to disturb the neighbors with a nature scavenger hunt you can do right in your own backyard. For even more fun, head to your local park or botanical garden. See if your child can find the following: smooth rock, bumpy rock, green leaf, leaf with bug holes, "needle" leaf, insect, flower, broken branches, animal footprints, bird nest, ant hill, feather, water, and a bird. Look up, down, and all around, and take the time to point out interesting discoveries with your child!
