Outdoor Play: Finding The Alphabet in Nature

Having recently discovered some of the amazing hikes in the Seattle area we are really keen to encourage the children to appreciate the wonders around them. My kids love outdoor play, especially in the woods but a 4 mile steep hike can be hard work for an 8, 4 and 2-year old. To keep them going on our last hike I asked them to see how many letters of the alphabet they could spot in the surrounding area. The letters had to be found in nature and they weren’t allowed to create a letter by moving an object.

Here are some of the letters we found

  1. That is such fun! I’ve done that with the children in school before, making a message by finding letters out in the payground. I’ll be logging this to do with The Boy.

    Nipping over from Country Kids.
