Woods and forests are made up of lots of different textures - silky flower petals, crumbly rotting wood, furry moss, sticky buds.
Download the scavenger hunt list and see how many you can find:
what did you find?
Make a paper bag to collect your discoveries and use them for some fun games back home.
Download and print the template:
When you get back home, make a feely box and fill it with the natural textures you've collected.
Challenge your friends to guess what the contents are, just using touch.
feely box instructions
This is another game to test sense of touch and your memory.
You'll need to collect some natural items that look and feel similar (but not identical). For example three types of petal, three twigs, three different leaves.
Blindfold your friend then give them one item, like a twig. Get them to feel it carefully and try to remember special features like bumps and smooth patches.
Put the twig with the other sticks you've collected, then remove your friend's blindfold. Can they guess which twig they were feeling?
Blindfold tree exploring
This is like the memory game, but on a much bigger scale using trees!
