Anyone fancy a game of Autumn Tic-Tac-Toe?
All you need are a few Autumn finds & you're all set. We used conkers & acorns, but pine cones, leaves, & any other autumnal goodies would work just as well.
Minnie gathered four sticks to make the frame & we were ready!
What's good is that if you've made this game while out somewhere, you can gather up everything & bring it back home to play with again!
A super simple activity which can encourage turn taking, making predictions, exploring patterns, & an appreciation of nature. If children are collecting the items for the game it's also a neat way to encourage sorting & counting skills.
I wonder what nature finds we'll add next time?
