Finding Alphabet Letters in Nature
Sometimes keeping small kids entertained at camp can be a challenge. One activity that my boys enjoy when we're camping, be it while we're hiking or when we're just hanging out around the tents, is finding Alphabet letters in nature. If you've never done it, be sure to try it the next time you're outside with your kids. You can simply look for random letters and see what you find (a better way to do it with smaller kids who are still learning their alphabet) or you can make it a game and see who can get to the end of the alphabet first. For a lasting memory, give each child a camera and let them take pictures of the letters they find. This activity is a fun, easy way to explore and learn more about nature and your kids will love discovering the secret letters that are hiding right in their own backyard.
