Pinning it Down – Backyard Nature Activity

When Sarah first announced that she and Pam were launching a pinning it down linky party I was all excited, just think of all the awesome pics I could share! Then came the kicker, she actually insisted I had to do it!!.   I had to actually turn that pin into action and only then could I share.
When this morning Jack Jack declared he wanted to ‘do some school’ (we’re on holidays for two more weeks yet)  I instantly knew what we would do.

I’ve been conscious for some time of the need to spend more time outdoors with the children, reading this article only re-enforced my belief.

Endeavouring to do better, with the aid of this pin, we headed outdoors with egg cartons with each compartment painted  a different colour. The challenge was to find natural objects to match each hue.

At first some thought it would be too hard, but with a bit of tenacity they managed quite nicely

and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge.

The girls took off independently on their own, so I was rather keen to see what they would come back with.

Thank you Sarah and Pam for the encouragement to take my pins to a ‘whole new level:)
Be sure to head on over to Pam’s to join the party fun.

    Found you through "Pinning It Down" at Pam's. I've been meaning to do something like this but, like you I figured it would be too hard to locate all the colors. I will give it a go though in the spring. Thanks for the reminder. 🙂

    You'd be lucky to find anything in the snow. lol.

    so honoured to see you and Sarah here, thank you for this great idea.

    I thought it would be much harder too.

    Are you in snow too?
