Let the kids go on a frog scavenger hunt to learn about camouflage.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 29, 2013
Animal camouflage is nature's way to protect and hide creatures from their predators. A fun filled scavenger hunt can just demonstrate that phenomena for kids.
Simply print out various frogs from the printables on Kids Activities Blog. Let the kids color the frogs in various colors that can be found in the backyard. If it is snowing outside, leave some white. Let her or him also color some frogs in bright colors.
Go outside and hide the frogs in the yard. Put the green frogs in green grass, the grey or brown frogs on tree branches, and so on. Also, place the bright colored frogs in the grass and trees.
Set a timer for one minute and let the kids find as many frogs as he or she can. After the minute, look at the result. More than likely brightly colored frogs have been found. Explain to the child that camouflage keeps animals safe in their environment.
Other educational fall activities include making fall mobiles, decorating pinecones, creating a tree hand banner, and creating an apple tree snack that is both delicious and healthy.
