Nature Treasure Boxes

O's decorated treasure box.

An adventure to our friend's lovely wood to fill it, with things from nature ( mmm orange is abit doubtful ! ) matching up the colours painted at the bottom of each section.


Leaves, berries, wild plums ... the wood was a larder of treasures.

We looked at soft and hard, smooth and spikey.
O at nearly 3, loved this activity, chasing round the wood to find his goodies, so very proud when he had found all the sections.
Inspired by the lovely Kelly and her boys http://freeflowingways.blogspot.com/

Thank you for reminding me about this lovely idea! I remember seeing it before and thinking "how fantastic", then putting it in the reserve file. Well...no time like the present! We'll be doing a treasure hunt in the next day or two!
