For this week’s TinkerLab, go outside with your little one and explore.

To get ready for your outdoor scavenger hunt, let’s start with a retelling of the old camp song We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, but instead, we’re going on a nature hunt!

SCAVENGER HUNT

Now head outside and hunt for these things. How many can you find? While looking for each one, talk with your little one about colors and shapes. Practice counting, too–petals, wings, leaves!

SENSORY WALK

Get ideas for how to use all your senses and build your little one’s vocabulary on our Outdoor Explorer page.
