Our apartment building is right across the parking lot from a huge wooded area full of running trails and a stream. I have not taken full advantage of having this great place literally right outside our door this summer. So I decided it was high time to get out there and explore. But I wanted to explore with a purpose so I did a little searching on Pinterest. I found the perfect thing…
She has great a free download of a bingo type list of stuff you can find out and about at a camp ground. We weren’t at a camp ground, but it was still just the thing. So I printed one out, grabbed a little tote bag and told Abbi we were going on an adventure.
She was really excited about it and once she was properly attired (proper attire for my 4 year old girly girl is her tutu, crown and teal stretch pants) we headed on out. Isn’t she adorable?
Abbi loved being able to find things without my help, except for the bug. She made this really petite little scream and ran away when she picked up a piece of bark that had some beetles crawling around under it. I may have giggled at her – but there was no way I was going to go pick that piece of bark myself .
Within about 20 minutes she had found everything on the list. Abbi was one happy, dirty little girl all ready for a bath.
Have you ever done a nature scavenger hunt before?
