Nature Hunt for Colors


When my children were toddlers and preschoolers, I grabbed an egg carton and painted each hole a different color. After it was dry, we went on a nature hunt for colors, and my children tried to find something in nature that matched the color of each hole. A small pine cone was brown, moss was light green, grass was dark green, and a small rock was gray. Pink flower petals were lying on the ground, and we picked them up. My children had a great time, and it helped them to pay closer attention to nature.

    what a great, and yet very simple, idea! Thank you and I’ll try this someday soon when our world is more than just gray. 🙁

      The best time to do this is in the spring, so that the children are hunting for all the new colors around them after the gray winter. I can’t wait for spring!

  2. What a fun idea and a great way to help them learn their colours! Thanks for sharing!

    What a cool idea! I have almost zero experience with doing nature walks with my kids and I never know where to begin. This idea seems like something even I could manage! 🙂
