nARTure Tuesday: Fall Rainbow Scavenger Hunt

Happy nARTure Tuesday! On Tuesdays, we love to share arts and mindful activities that connect us with nature. For the next several weeks, we will share some of the activities that we explore at Art in Nature Camp! This season, Art in Nature Camp focuses on the changes we experience during fall.

For week 1, we got to know one another, set intentions for our community, and explored the park while looking for all the colors of the rainbow. Campers found multicolored leaves, bright fall blooms and berries, twigs, and some craft feathers they found on the ground. We learned why deciduous tree leaves change colors and fall this time of year in Kentucky. Then, campers split into groups and made a collage from the objects they found on our hike. These collages now decorate our camp space!

Rainbow scavenger hunts are great to do any time of year, for any age. You can adapt them to your time limits, interest, and surroundings. You can gather found objects like we did. Or you can do a photography scavenger hunt, and take photos of all the colors of the rainbow on your hike. Or you can sketch the objects in your nature journal! Or you can simply acknowledge the colors you find. Whatever rainbow scavenger hunt approach you take, this activity helps to make any walk more intentional and uniquely magical. We promise you will notice something you never had before!
