Kids Activities - Nature Walk

Yesterday I wanted to take a walk but sometimes the kids get bored so we decided to do a nature walk.  I had printed a “Spring Nature Walk Senses Scavenger Hunt” Sheet from Hearts and Trees.  I printed it a while ago so I’m not sure if it is still available.

We put the sheet on a clipboard and grabbed a pencil.



Then we went down the list.  We found a bird’s nest in a neighbor’s tree.



We smelled the flowers.



We stood in the sun to feel the warmth and then in the shade to feel cooler.



We felt soft flowers and then we felt a stick for something rough.



It actually went pretty well and everyone was excited to do something.  I allowed them to bring little bags to collect sticks and rocks and such and they really liked doing that.  I wish I would have done this sooner.  It is a fun, free and easy kids activity.


How about you?  Have you done any nature walks lately?  What do you do on your nature walks?
