Way back last spring, I pinned this activity for the girls to do over the summer, but summer came and went and we never did it. I really love how it encourages kids to explore their environment so that they begin falling in love with the natural world around them.
So I made it my goal to complete this fall — a much easier time to send the girls outside than the summer — and we finally did it over Thanksgiving break.
The instructions are:
1. Do the activities on the cards.
2. Take a picture of the card during the activity.
3. Write a letter about your experience.
4. Make a new card to add.
5. Send the letter and cards to a friend so they can do it, too.
The girls had a great time playing in the backyard and walked over to the park by themselves to take pictures of ducks. They even found a butterfly (or moth) in November!
