Tips for Families

Pick ten things from around your house and put them in a bag. Lay the things on the table and give your child one minute to look at them and say what each item is. Now put them back in the bag and see how many she can remember.

Tips for Teachers

Paint a mural using items from nature as paint brushes. Gather small tree branches, pine cones, leaves, some grass, and other objects. Spread a large piece of butcher paper on the ground. Dip the items into tempera paint, and use them to paint different textures on the mural.
