Happy Trees - Ideas for Outside Play

The inspiration for this comes from

Little Page Turners' Happy Trees post!

Using leaves, flowers, grass & berries from their backyard, along with a few thumbtacks, they made their trees smile!

To target language while you play try focusing on nature naming words e.g.
- leaf, berry, grass, bark etc.
Or face naming words e.g.
- eyes, nose, mouth, eyebrows, cheeks etc.

For your older or more advanced children try comparing and contrasting e.g.
- the berry is like an eye because its small and round
- the grass isn't like a nose because it's too long and thin

Have fun everyone!
