Why We Love It: This fun twist on the scavenger hunt gets kids outside in search of pretty colors and connects art and nature. Win-win!
What You'll Need: Cardboard, scissors, crayons, glue dots and colorful objects found outdoors.
How to Do It: Cut a piece of cardboard -- an empty cereal box will work -- into a circle to create an artist's palette. Draw small circles around the perimeter and label each one with the name of a color. Have your kid color in each circle. Then, head outside to collect objects that match the colors -- a red flower or a brown pebble, for example. Attach them to the palette with glue dots.
