Nature Walk Game and Instructions for Kids

I love Fall. The beautiful colors of the changing leaves beckon me to walk among them before Winter comes. My family enjoys strolling through the various gardens and walkways covering the campus of
Minnetrista, and my young children especially like to visit the Children's Garden. For a fun twist on our nature walk, I created fall I Spy cards to take along.
The I Spy game encouraged my children to intently observe their surroundings. We have been to that garden many times before, but by turning our visit into a game, it made it a new experience. My girls were excited when they found each of the objects printed on the cards. We thought you might enjoy playing too.
To join along in the fun:
1. Print out the I Spy cards onto cardstock.
2. Cut out, laminate for durability, punch a hole at the top and place on a metal ring.
Tip: If you would like smaller cards, change the print option to reduce the size or to print two pages on one page.
Create your cards now and come enjoy a Fall Nature Walk at Minnetrista!
