I Spy Nature!

I Spy Nature

I’ve been in a slump this week. Not depressed, just not a lot of energy to do anything beyond what I already promised the kids we would do. When I came across this Nature Scavenger Hunt (on pinterest! of course!), I knew it was something my kids could do easily without my help. Which is nice, because I have some… web browsing to do. Very important stuff, you know.

The thing I didn’t love about this nature scavenger hunt was that you were supposed to collect stuff. I could just see little bits of “nature” working its way in my house and refusing to leave. Plus I wanted a fun little twist to make it more interesting for my older kids, Jordan and Rebecca. They’ve been somewhat couch potatoes this summer, and they’ve been struggling to get along.

I came up with a fun activity called “I Spy Nature!” It’s a list of items that you print out, but rather than collecting items, you just take pictures. Nice and clean, see?

This worked out brilliantly. My twelve year old was surprised that he had fun doing it. I was surprised that they didn’t fight while doing it. {I send my kids outside and ten minutes later, they are inside tattling. I ask you, what is the point of tattling when you’re just as guilty as the person you’re tattling on??}

Any activity that doesn’t inspire arguing is a winner in my book. And just look at the fun things they found

something straight:

and something they consider a ‘treasure:’

Now we have some fun pictures to keep, and I had an hour of peace. What more could you want?
