A Nature Hunt

A Nature Hunt

Today we went on a nature hunt searching for Items M1 thought would be fun to have in a "nature sensory bin"

We used binoculars to search out our special items:

Here are some things we found
Flowers of course (a lot were the dead flowers that I have been picking and throwing off my plants)

Ferns, leaves 

Large rocks
"Peeling" sticks ie sticks that have loose bark

A very large log that M1 really wanted to take but I am pretty sure I could not move it if I tried. Hopefully later this week we will come back and do some fun projects with the castoffs from Daddy playing lumberjack last week. 

Clover (can you find a four leaf?)

Stop by later this week to see how we put it all together in our sensory bin!

A few fun pictures from later on:

What kid doesn't love BUBBLES!!

How many can you pop?

Which body parts can you pop a bubble with? hands, toes, elbows, nose, belly? Makes bubble chasing really fun!

M2 at the edge of her seat trying to catch a bubble.

A beautiful day to play at the park

M2 believes you should not touch sand... with your hands. Oh and don't get it in your diaper....!!!

M2 - "My Sister is sooooo funny!" 

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future!"

  1. I had a tree felled last Autumn and I wish I could have gone outside when they'd finished to collect at least 2 of the large base rings to transform into planters for my grandson. please tell me you did this with M1 & M2
