The sun is finally shining, and the ice is melting. It's a beautiful day to get outside.
But what to do, what to do?
Why not take the kids on a shape walk?
Challenge your tots, or your older children, to use their observational skills and see how many shapes they can find in nature. A diamond? A square? An oval?
You can even turn it into a competition and see who can find the most. Maybe the winner gets a sticker or a special treat after dinner.
I went for a shape walk just outside the Dickinson County Nature Center in Kenue Park and was surprised at just how many shapes I could find.
Can you beat me?
That's seven shapes for me! Let me know how many you find in the comments below!
