There's always a lot to explore in nature. Especially when there are no expectations or limitations.

Kids generally love to fill their pockets with sticks and stones and other things found outside.

That makes activities with twigs a sure thing with toddlers and preschoolers!

We've included a mix of indoor and outdoor projects in this roundup. When you are limited by weather, outdoor space, or other factors, simply take a bit of nature inside for kids to explore hands-on.

You can choose the one that fits for any given day (including the weather!), theme, or interest.

Let's get started!
