During outdoor sessions, create letters of the alphabet using found materials. Perhaps a twig is naturally the shape of a letter, or objects are collected and rearranged into the shape of a letter. Allow imaginations to run wild!

It can be combined with the activities: Nature’s Opposites and Explore Like a Victorian for a full day session, or series of themed sessions around literacy
