We have spent this past week exploring nature with my kids and to be honest, I’d keep the books on the shelf all week, to spend our days exploring nature. You can even enjoy this activity at Winter and talk about the colors that are a part of the winter season.
My preschooler enjoyed this activity as much as my 4th grader. We practiced our colors in Spanish for the older boys and my preschooler practiced his colors that he’s been learning in both english and spanish. We are doing botany in science so this was a good lesson for it because during our nature color hunt they spotted moss and lichen which were a part of their lesson earlier that day.
Nature Color Hunt
Nature Color Hunt was a family favorite that we have enjoyed in our neighborhood and while camping. We took the afternoon off from homeschool (even though we were doing school) and headed to hunt for the beautiful colors of nature in our neighborhood. We live in the city, a big city so I was a little doubtful on the success of our outing but to my surprise we found everything even the color blue in nature.
- Egg carton
- markers or paint (different colors)
1. Color in the middle of each egg spot in the egg carton.
2. Then go around the neighborhood or the park and fill in the spots with corresponding nature items.
Use colors that you think might be in and around your area. I used the color blue thinking that we might not find anything and I was going to talk to them about how some colors are harder to find in nature but my boys managed to find some flowers on our way back home that were blue.
