Adults and preschoolers can discover the outside world together with this updated and newly illustrated edition of this popular nature activity book. Tailored to the abilities and interests of preschool children, this book contains 67 activities selected to enhance young children's creativity, observational skills, and understanding of the natural world. By examining insects and pebbles, discovering wind and sun, or observing the growth of seedlings, preschoolers will delight in the many ways the world comes alive. Using household items like yarn, finger paints, or a flashlight, the crafts and activities are simple to produce and exciting to learn. A seed mosaic, an elf house from a milk carton, and a pinecone mobile are some of the fun projects preschoolers can create while discovering science along the way. Children will especially enjoy the nighttime activities, such as an owl walk in the winter, a firefly picnic in summer, a flashlight hike, stargazing, and attracting moths to nectar. Parents will appreciate how the activities encourage early learning skills, such as identifying colors and shapes, describing feelings, comparing, and expressing observations and ideas.
