In the forest or in the countryside, flowers, trees, sounds can be the start of a game ... Glean some rural ideas. Your little adventurer will be delighted.

1. Listens to the sounds

From 3 years old. During a picnic or a walk, have fun with your child listening to the sounds around you. Each turn, or together, close your eyes and tell everything you hear: the wind blowing in the trees, the birds (yes, but how much?), The cracking branches, the engine of the tractor ...

2. Little animals with a magnifying glass!

From 3 years old. In a backpack, plan a magnifying glass, a box and a paintbrush. During your walk, find a place with insects (eg under stones) and show your child how to observe them with his magnifying glass. How many legs does this ant have? Does it have antennas? To be clear, catch it with the brush to avoid hurting and put it in the box until your little entomologist observes in detail.

3. Decal bark

From 3 years old. Your child places a thick sheet of paper against a tree trunk of his choice and, while holding it with one hand (help him if he can not do it), he paints it with a colored pencil or a bold pastel. What is going on ? A pattern appears as if by magic! And by changing the tree, is the drawing the same? To him to complete his collection with different trees during his walks.

4. The 100% nature postcard

From 4 years old. While walking, your child picks up leaves and flowers of different colors and sizes. At home, he glues them with your help on a thick white sheet that you have cut in half before, so as to make a postcard. Once everything is dry, you can laminate it with clear self-adhesive paper to prevent the leaves from peeling off before you reach your destination.

5. The queen of daisies

From 4 years old. In the meadows, your child is looking for daisies that have long stems. When he has finished his bouquet, he has only to weave them, with your help, adding flowers as and when, in order to make a crown! And here is the king, or the queen, daisies!

6. The big hut

From 4 years old. Enjoy a forest walk to take a break and offer your child to build a cabin. To do this, gather some long branches, leaves, and choose the tree that will serve as support to make this little house. No need to seek to achieve an elaborate construction, it is the principle of hiding that pleases him. You can also build a cabin in your garden by stretching between two chairs a sheet that you do not use anymore. Place some cushions underneath and your toddler is filled in his hiding place.

7. Night walk

From 5 years old. When the sun goes down, the sounds of nature and the sound of animals take on a whole new dimension. Enjoy a beautiful summer evening for a night walk with your little adventurer, taking a flashlight if needed to reassure him. No need to go far to enjoy. Branches crunching, singing owls ... does your child hear them? And this sparkling star, does it see it? And the moon, where is she? If your child liked the experience, why not organize a wake one evening in the garden. You could then tell stories and stories ...

8. The dominoes pebbles

From 5 years old. During a walk, find with your child pebbles flat, if possible dark and roughly the same size, to make dominoes. Once at home, take white paint and a fine paintbrush and draw a white line to divide each pebble. On each side of the line, draw white dots that will act as numbers. Help your child to not forget any combination (1-2, 2-3, 5-5, etc.). Let dry well. The game can begin!

9. And what age is this tree?

From 5 years old. In the forest, look for a tree stump and observe it with your child then count the concentric rings. They indicate the age of the tree that was there before. You count ten circles? He was ten years old! Does your child notice a narrower ring than the others? This is the sign that that year, growth was difficult, perhaps because of drought or cold.
