Pretend to be nature pirates
How much hidden loot can you fit in your miniature treasure chest? Search for tiny natural items in your garden and see who can fit the most inside a matchbox or other small container. Look out for mini discarded snail shells, tiny twigs, small shiny pebbles and little petals and leaves. Set a time limit and see who will be the winner. Count how many items you collected and you could do some observational drawing using a magnifying glass to look in detail at your loot.
