Nature Walk PDF FACEBOOK SHARE ICON.

Here is an activity to support your preschooler’s development.

What You Need:


  • Bag or box to hold collected objects

What To Do:


  1. Walk outdoors with your child and collect natural materials such as small rocks, sticks, twigs, and dried leaves that you find.

  2. Encourage your child to sort the objects into piles of the same types of items. For example, one pile of rocks, one of leaves, and so on. Talk about how the items in each pile are alike or different.

  3. Ask questions such as, “Which pile do you think has the most? Which one has the least?”

  4. Confirm guesses by counting the items with her.
