Nature Scavenger Hunt!
Hi Again! Your amateur nature therapist here, with another fun activity to do outside while going for your physical distancing walks and connecting with nature: a nature scavenger hunt! This hunt is based on principles of Take only photos, Leave only footprints, so you won’t be taking anything with you, just observing and recording in your favorite way. This is another activity that is perfect for any age, because different ages will observe and record nature on different levels. Be scientific, be artistic, be logical, be creative, just do this activity your way. :)
Nature Scavenger Hunt: Take a notebook, sketch pad, digital or phone camera, phone recorder, or anything that suits you to record your observations. Take only memories, leave only footprints. Do this in a day, in a week, in a month. Do it your way.
