The Colors in Nature on a Walk around the Neighborhood

After playing with our senses in our own yard the other day, Hazel and I took a walk around the neighborhood. She wanted to ride in her stroller which didn't bother me since I could get more exercise in. We decided to look and see what colors we could see in nature as we walked around our neighborhood. I didn't start taking pictures of what we saw until the last part of the walk, but here are a few things we saw.
Yellow Dandelions
Blue Vinca
Yellow, White, Pink and Red Flowers
White Flowering Trees
Pale Purple Flowers
Yellow and Orange Daffodils
Pink/Purple Azalea
Pink and White Flowering Tree
Red Tree and Yellow Bush
White barked birch tree
Orange and Red Pansies and Purple and Blue Violas
Grey Fur
Pink Flowers
Blue Sky
Yellow Forsythia and Pink Cherry Blossoms


We also discussed all the green and brown we saw everywhere and every shade of green.

Then we drew in our journal a day or so later remembering what we saw.
Hazel loves having me draw with her. I tried to label whatever we drew, but didn't get them all. I think the red and green on the last page was a car with eyes.


Some books to go with this walk... Rainbow Sheep by Kim Chatel and What Does Bunny See? by Linda Sue Park.

What have you been doing outside?

  3. I love the drawings in the journal. That's so great to utilize a different sensory experience to solidify their learning from their walk. Thanks for sharing with us in the Kids Co-Op this week. :)
