what green things do you see

Chatty-do! How many green things can you find today?


Get out in the world and go for the green! Look for great big green things, tiny little green things, and find some moving green things, too. Conversing about the colors that your preschooler finds sharpens their verbal skills, visual acuity and environmental awareness.

Loved it? Give this a try:

On your green search, gather interesting objects to make Nature's Sculptures. Or make Paper Bag Trees with fresh, green leaves. Read our blog, Child's Play is Major Work to put it all in perspective.
