Materials needed: Pen/Pencil; Paper; Items found in nature (flowers, rocks, twigs, leaves, etc.) Go on a nature walk with your child, invite them to pick up different things along the way and save it in a bag or something to carry it in. When you get back home, draw two fairly large circles on the paper side by side. On top of the first circle write “Big”, on the second circle write “Little” or “Small”. Invite your child to go through what they’ve collected on their nature walk and see where each item will go. Is the item small or big? Some guidance may be needed from the adult.
