Our nature walk took the form of a mushroom hunt. I brought a camera along and asked Teddy what we should look for today. He chose mushrooms. I never expected to find 9 different kinds!
I highly recommend this as a way to get a child to focus in on details. Now to try to identify them. Although we have 14 field guides, none are very good for mushroom identification. We will be turning to the internet for that. Some will be lovely for drawing though.
