P.L.A.Y.-filled activity adventure suggestions (long):
- Challenge: Select a log in the woods or forest near your home to visit and revisit again and a again through the seasons for one year.
- Super Challenge: Record (or “log”) what you see and smell and the textures you touch with each visit to this particular log. Be sure to put plenty of details about colors, shapes, sizes, so that the changes are clear when you look back through your Nature Adventures journal. Try bringing a magnifying glass to see all the fun features up close.
- Super-Duper Challenge: For a similar adventure select one square yard (3ft x 3ft) of space anywhere in nature. Visit it often, let your senses come alive and record what you see, smell, hear, touch, on each visit through out the seasons. What changes take place? What stays the same? Look closely!
