Spring Scavenger Hunt

We have finally started to experience some nice Spring weather here in our neck of the woods, and we actually have been able to go outside a few times with <gasp> NO coats on!!

One day, the girls were finished with their schoolwork extremely early for some reason (can you say spring fever?) and were looking for something to fill that extra time, as well as looking for an excuse to go outside and enjoy the nice weather.

I just happened to have come across a lovely Spring Scavenger Hunt free printable on a blog that I follow, so I printed out a copy for them, gave them the camera and sent them outside!

The blog where I found the Scavenger Hunt!

Here are some of the picture the girls took as they explored the backyard in Spring, armed with their Scavenger Hunt worksheet! They had a blast! As you will see, it was still a little too cold for bees and butterflies, so the girls improvised a little bit!

A bird flying in the sky!
A flower breaking through the ground!

 A bird's nest being worked on.

 A rain puddle.

 You can't really see it, but they insist they were tracking an ant in this picture!

 Buds on the trees - finally!

 A bluebird occupying a homemade birdhouse in our backyard!

 A duck!

 A Frog!!

This was the closest thing they could find to a of my garden statues!

 They were happy to not actually have a real bumblebee to take a picture of!

 No sign of any real caterpillars yet either.....

Here is a follow up picture of the tulips that were shown up top. Laura took this picture just a few days ago, because she was fascinated with the way the sunshine shines right on this plant every morning.

It has been wonderful to feel the warmth and regeneration of spring, and I hope you are enjoying it as well!
