Nature Color Hunt

Go for a Nature Color Hunt on your natural playground! - place different colors of paper in the sections of an ice cube tray. Children can go on a scavenger hunt across their natural playscape to find the colors in nature.

Mud Pie Kitchen - I'd paint this upcycled pallet bench in bright colours to encourage outdoor play. Gather old tins & pots from thrift stores - great way to teach children how to make compost & worm teas for the garden, brew up their own fresh calming herb chamomile or lemon balm tea & bake seed balls to grow new flowers & herbs. | The Micro Gardener
