Wild Flower Hunt

Resources
Cards with different shaped flowers on them

Where
Places with a diversity of flowers. E.g. Skinny Woods, Hawkhill Wood, Innocent Walkway, some areas of Craigmillar Castle Park.

Why
To encourage children to notice different and similar shapes in their natural surroundings.

How
Children can either work in small groups or alone. The object is to find as many different flowers as they can with the same shape as on the cardówithout picking them! Once a child or group has found as many objects as they can of one shape, they can swap cards with another group and try and find as many shapes as the other child / group did. Alternatively, a child / group can get together with another child / group and show them what they found. 

This game can also be played by finding as many of each shape as possible, in nature in general.
