Fall is just starting to make its appearance in the valley where I live! This is my favorite season, and I love spending as much time as I can enjoying it! My little one has been begging to go for a walk around the neighborhood so we’re going to head out this morning (as long as it doesn’t rain).
Help your children take notice of the change in weather by doing this fun scavenger hunt! Take them on a nature walk around your neighborhood, observing and discussing the signs of fall. It’s fun to bring a bucket to collect fall items in, such as acorns and leaves. In the past, I’ve provided a “bingo board” for each child with things to look for. They decorated it, put it on a clipboard, and took the clipboard and a crayon with us on our walk. Every time they found a sign of fall from their board, they marked it. Our goal was to find all 9 things.
Note: You can make your own bingo board by finding clip art similar to this on the internet.
