You can make a couple different sets on different size blocks and they can measure how big their scarecrow is to help identify different sizes. Dramatic Play- Laminate leaves or leaf pictures so children can use them as food. They can pretend that they swallowed leaves and count how many they ate. Put other nature items in that they can use for food like pine cones and wood cookies. Children can talk about what kind of animals eat those kinds of food.
