This was definitely a success for our homeschool preschool. My 3 year old was very excited when I told him we were doing a nature scavenger hunt at the park. He even asked if he could bring his binoculars (a gift from his grandmother).
There are dozens of these on Pinterest. We used this one. I liked that it had big pictures and that the objects weren’t too obscure. If we do it again though I’ll add a paper bag for them to keep their finds in.
This is definitely an activity we will do again. I actually think he will get even more out of it the second time. I’d also like to try to do something each season and observe how nature changes. Right now I actually have the clipboard in my car so we can be finding things as we travel around to different places.
