Nature Hide and Seek Game

I love activities that combine a nature walk with a later project or game, and this one does precisely that. We set off to find brown and green items from nature that would camouflage two empty toilet paper tubes.

Okay, maybe walking around our apartment complex doesn’t quite count as a nature walk… But there’s always green things to find!

We returned with a bucket full of treasures, and I laid them out on the table so Travis could take stock.

He loved using glue and deciding which leaves should go where.

We left our little camo tubes to dry overnight, then headed off on a walk the next afternoon.

Travis was the hider first… Perhaps he didn’t find the most secretive hiding place, but it was adorable to watch him try.

Mommy hid the treasures next, and Travis set off to find them.

Gotcha!

Overall this was simple, fun, and a neat way to throw in a little lesson about how animals and insects use camouflage to hide in the wild, too.
