If you’re enjoying a beautiful Fall season where you live, it’s hard to sit at the table after school. I’ve collected 9 fun learning activities for outside from our awesome bloggers who link up at the After School linky. I hope you get a chance to try some!
My kids are always curious about how big things are. They’ll have fun taking out our measuring tools (rulers, kitchen scales, and measuring tape) for some outdoor math ideas by Wildlife Fun 4 Kids.
Find this incredible set of 30 leaf identification cards (free!) at Wildflower Ramblings.
Don’t put away that super soaker yet! Use it to zap sight word ghosts on the driveway – from Coffee Cups and Crayons.
I love this idea for using nature objects in Venn diagrams! Find it at How Wee Learn.
Practice number recognition with this creative outdoor game from JDaniel4’s Mom.
Take a play dough nature walk with How Wee Learn.
Collect and explore natural materials with For the Children.
Save that Halloween candy for a Sight Word Treasure Hunt from Life with Moore Babies.
And practice counting and addition with this number line run from Coffee Cups and Crayons.
And now, the linky!
