Nature exploration round up

My 3 year old loves exploring nature. All he needs is a pile of dirt, rocks, leaves and probably a few cars and he can keep occupied for hours. 

I think it's so important to let him have time in nature, but now that it's fall here in the Netherlands, we get so much rain. Rain + wheelchair + a preschooler doing whatever can tend to get a bit much so we try to go out and about during the few moments of the year when it's dry outside. 

However, that doesn't mean that nature play and exploration stops just because of the rain. Here are over thirty lovely nature exploration activities from Welcome to Mommyhood as well as many other wonderful blogs out there!
