Daily Candy offered a fun tip this week for summer garden fun: Nature Bingo.
Here’s how it works.
Step One: Select 24 objects that can be easily found in your backyard or local park (or not so easily found, depending on how much of a break you need). Think seasonal flowers, plants, trees, bugs, even rocks.
Step Two: Have kids draw a grid (five across, five down, with a free space in the middle) depicting these objects using crayons or markers.
Step Three: Send your child out and about to find five in a row. Once mastered, mix things up by choosing new items to hunt for.
Step Four: Repeat as necessary.
