Your toddler or preschooler will love to go on a nature walk and then experiment with the items you collect!

How We Did It

Sink or Float? Nature Experiment

Take a nature walk and hunt for things to collect with your little one. This was the best part for me because she was so excited to find anything and everything. Her reaction to each and every leaf was as if she had found gold!

Sink or Float? Nature Experiment

Hunt for things like flowers, sticks, rocks, leaves, acorns, and other treasures.

Sink or Float? Nature Experiment
Take the items back home and talk about which items your child thinks will sink and which items will float. You can put them in piles accordingly or just talk about it and dive in like we did.
Sink or Float? Nature Experiment

"It floats!" she cheered for most of our items. Next she came up with the idea to stack all of the things on top of one leaf to see if it would sink it. It is so much fun to watch children this age experiment with things. She had so much fun trying it.
