Well, here we are in April but we’re just now getting the chance – a sunny, warm day! – to go on our Green Time adventure from March’s issue of Ranger Rick Jr. – a counting walk!
The magazine included a list of suggested things to count as you take a walk outside, including mailboxes, fire hydrants, and squirrels. We wanted a nice warm day so we’d be more likely to see a couple items on the list like dogs (out for a walk) and bicycle riders.
As we kept a tally of each item, I helped Travis decide what number was one higher than the number we’d said before.
By far we found the most mailboxes – 10!
Meanwhile Travis loved spotting hydrants – 2!
We nearly thought we’d end the walk with zero bicycles until a man went cycling past us. Travis was very proud to make the tally.
And because he loves them, Travis decided we needed to count pickup trucks in driveways as well – for a grand total of 7.
Overall, this was a great exercise – not just for the legs but for the mind as well!
