As I am talking to my five year old about seasons, I decided to make a little scavenger hunt for her and other interested kiddos. I’m a little late posting it – in hotter places, the blackberries are well over, for example – but all the elements should still be find-able. Please know that this is a LOOKING ONLY hunt (photos are okay), as we don’t want anyone picking a beautiful bunch of poison oak, or trying to make off with a rancher’s hay bale! But hopefully it will be as fun for you to do as it was for us.
I included a few fun facts about each treasure, and for the plants, there are a lot more on this blog: read about pink ladies, poison oak, fennel, Himalayan blackberry, or Pacific blackberry. What are your favorite facts or stories about each of these? Tell me in the comments!
