Searching for the alphabet in nature is a way to help you focus, slow down and enjoy being outside. This activity helps you see ordinary things in a new way, and can be done in any season, any time and anywhere.
- Imagination and keen eyes
- Go outside in nature and look for shapes of the alphabet in nature. Try looking in your backyard, a park or ravine, or another natural area.
- Take pictures of the letters you see in the shapes of branches, leaves and other parts of nature. If you don't have a camera.
- For an extra activity, download your photos at home and use them to spell out your name or other words and print them out.
Other than letters, what other shapes do you see in nature?
