Creative early childhood activities incorporate art and role-playing to teach basic natural science concepts about meadows and the concept of protective coloration. During the activities, children make flowers and grass for a mural, then talk about small animals they've seen in real grass or on flowers. They decorate camouflaged paper butterflies and make hungry bird puppets, then act out the behavior of birds and butterflies.
