Frugal Fall Fun 2: Nature Walk

It’s that time of year where I don’t know what’s in the air but I get creative! I guess after lounging around during the summer and seeing all the amazing beauty outside, I feel inspired. Hence the series on Frugal Fall Fun.

Need:
Bag to collect items
Picnic
Treasure hunt paper and pens

One of the greatest things about fall is the gorgeous weather and spectacular displays of nature. In fact it’s a perfect time to pack a picnic and head out on a nature walk. Depending how old your kids are will depend on how in depth you get with the walk. Isaac is 2 so I opted for fairly simple.

  • Take a bag with you to collect nature treasures such as fallen leaves, grasses and acorns.
  • Make up a treasure hunt sheet of things they have to find and give them a pen and some paper. Every time they find an object they get to check it off until they’ve found them all.
  • Make it into a game and see who can find the most treasure the first.

Bring that bag home, tomorrow is all about getting creative with what we’ve found.
