Here are some other goodies the kids picked up.
Don't you love it when educational opportunities pop up out of nowhere! We were only going for a walk
The following day on another walk around the same local park, but taking a different path, the kids again picked up some seed pods. These ones are from a native tree. The seeds were so thick on the ground the kids could scoop handfuls! More discussion ensued. When we stood quietly we could hear the seeds fall to the ground. Here are some pics of our treasures.
There was lots of discussion about these last two pics as the kids realised that there were lots of seed pods clustered together.
Maybe i will remember to take my camera next time we head out for a 'walk'.
