I love those awesome old Oak trees that have leaves shaped like turkey feet. I grew up hearing them called Turkey Track trees. Little Mister and I were outside playing yesterday and he noticed some 'turkey track' leaves on the ground. I was so proud of his observation skills and we immediately jumped into the moment. Within seconds we were on a Turkey Track Hunt through a far-away, dark jungle. (I know turkeys don't really live in the jungle, but that's where my little hunter wanted to tromp!)
We brought some of our trophies inside and sorted and matched them according to size. All in all, we had a terrific hunt. We used our imagination and then sharpened some math skills. I'd say it was a successful afternoon!
***No actual leaves were harmed in the evolution of this post! Stunt leaves were employed and promptly released after they served to make Little Mister smarter.***
