Discovery Walks
Go on a walk and have children touch various objects.  “How does it feel?”
Have them close their eyes and try to identify objects by their sense of touch.
*Take a listening walk where children close their eyes and try to identify different sounds in the environment.

Number Hunt
Take several lunch sacks and write different numerals on each one.  Give each child a bag and challenge them to find a set and put it in the bag.  Let children share what they have found with their friends.  Have children return the objects to where they found them.
Hint!  This can also be done with a partner or in small groups.

Food Color Dip
Fill several small cups half way with water.  Add 10 drops of food coloring to each cup.  Let the children fold a paper towel into a small square.  Dip each corner in a different color.  Open and dry.
