Good morning, Pre-K! This week is going to be all about getting outside in nature and I am excited to share with you a story to start our activities!
Craft to take on our scavenger hunt: Binoculars
Let’s create binoculars that we can take outside with us on our scavenger hunt! You just need a paper towel roll, string and whatever you would like for your child to decorate them. You could use markers, stickers, glitter, construction paper, etc.
First, an adult can cut a paper towel roll in half and then hot glue or staple them together. Then, let your child decorate them any way they would like. Finally, an adult can help put a string through. Now you are ready for a scavenger hunt!
One simple, fun way to do a scavenger hunt outside is to simply put colours on a paper bag and then your child has to find something from nature for every colour. For example, they may find a dandelion for yellow, a leaf for orange, grass for green, an acorn for brown, etc. I can’t wait to see what you find!
Here are some pictures of our classmates completing activities from last week:
Cohan also has shared with us that he has a butterfly kit! Right now they are caterpillars and growing every day- soon they will form cocoons! If anyone else has a butterfly kit, send me a picture of what your caterpillars look like!
I will have more nature activities for us on Thursday!
