Welcome the new season with a free outdoor activity that will have you discovering flowers, insects, worms, birds and more colourful signs of new beginnings!
During your next trip to the home improvement store, pick up a bunch of paint colour cards. Punch a hole in the top of each card and place a ring through the holes to keep all your cards together. Punch a hole in the bottom of each colour to help make it easier to discover and match colours.
Now get the kids together and go on a hike to discover signs of spring. This can be done anywhere, including your own backyard. Make it a goal to find at least one item from each colour theme. Peek through the hole you punched at the bottom of each colour to make a perfect match.
Keep track by making a list of your discoveries on the corresponding colours. You can make this a re-usable activity by covering the fronts of your paint colour cards with clear contact paper and keeping your list with a dry erase marker.
Enjoy your time exploring when spring blooms!
