I made colored egg cartons for my boys about 4 years ago. I ran across the one that we had left and decided it would be a great nature study activity for LouLou our three year old. She usually tags along during regular nature study, but this time I let the activity be just for her. It was great entertainment for about 15 minutes outside and 10 minutes inside when we drew what she had found.
After we came inside, Mommy and LouLou drew inside our nature notebook. We labeled what we had found and the beautiful colors of the items.
