This is a great nature activity for family and friends.
- Adults can gather pairs of twigs, or leaves which match surrounding trees (without breaking them off trees, of course).
- Hand them out randomly to kids.
- Let them choose a friend they are going to work with.
- When they ‘ve chosen a partner, let them go exploring in search of the tree that matches their twigs/leaves.
- When they find it, let them use their senses to explore it and come up with their own tree name, as if they were an explorer finding it for the first time.
