Summer time is the perfect opportunity to really do a ton of nature learning activities. Today I have a cute little Leaf Shape Hunt for you to do with your kids on your next nature outing. My son and I had fun doing this together in our backyard one afternoon.
Leaf Shape Hunt
This is a little like a bingo game, but with leaves. There is a small grid of leaf images that kids can use to hunt down their own leaves. Grab a bag or a basket and go out collecting. This little leaf shape hunt only has a few leaf shapes, there are obviously way more than what is on this paper, but it is a great activity for young kids learning shapes! They can decided which leaves they find most closely represent the ones on the paper.
Since today is part of the Nature Book Club, I have to give you a great book recommendation to tie in with this activity. I usually have a hard time narrowing down my choice, so I will give you a few great recommendations!
