Thanks very much to Terry Sanders, who put together a great compilation of nature activities and posted it to the WAGGGS-L Mailing List. Thanks as well to the members of the Mailing List who sent their ideas into Terry. This game was one of them!
Before assembling children, gather 10 common natural objects from the area you're in. Put objects on a bandanna and cover with another bandanna. Call the children close around you -- tell them you will show them 10 objects for 25 seconds, so take a good look and try to remember everything you see. Give the group 5 minutes to search on their own and collect identical items keeping their findings quiet. When they return, the leader takes out each item one by one telling interesting stories about each one. It's fun to see how many items the girls can remember.
