My Nature Senses

My Nature Senses

What You’ll Need:

 Getting into the Activity

Explore nature using all your senses. What will you hear, feel, see and smell?

Download and print the ‘My Nature Senses’ activity sheet, or create your own. There are two sheets to choose from, one which gives items for children to go and find and the other sheet leaves the boxes blank for them to draw / write what they find. Choose whichever works best for your group and location.

This activity works best in a wooded area / park / nature reserve etc, but would work just as well in any outdoor space with trees and plants. Encourage the children to explore in small groups accompanied by a leader. As well as ticking off the items from the sheet, ask the children to write down what they find too. This will then allow you to come back together as a group to see / compare what children have found for the different categories.

Keeping Everyone Safe 

  • Activity MUST be supervised by a leader or parent/carer at ALL times.
  • A leader or parent/carer MUST assess risk before taking part.
  • A leader or parent/carer MUST ensure that current Government guidelines are followed at all times (including social distancing, travel etc).
