Nature Walk

By: Leann Presley

An ordinary, everyday walk is a lot more fun – and a lot more educational – when it becomes a nature walk. You and your child can hone observation and memory skills by looking for trees, leaves, sticks, squirrels, dogs, bicycles, etc. When you return home, ask your child to draw pictures of what you saw or write a story about the items your family collected along the walk. On your next walk, expand the fun and skills, playing Nature Walk Bingo by trying to find the same items. Or, find those items again by playing I Spy. And when you bring those nature treasures home, your child can use them to create an artistic masterpiece. This fun yet easy activity can help your child develop visual and fine motor skills.
