A Garden Treasure Hunt from One Perfect Day – This activity would be partnered with messy play outside, as well. Together we can paint rocks different colors; then after they have dried Mommy or Daddy can hide them and let Sam find them, calling out the color as he finds them. In addition, we could line them up and let him run and pick up the color we call out as a variation. The possibilities are endless!
