This little set includes a deck of 32 individual cards and an 8"x12" muslin drawstring collection pouch. Each card in the set illustrates an object that can be found in many typical playgrounds, parks, and backyards. They're great for encouraging outdoor exploration, and are a handy size to carry in a purse, glove box, or backpack.

The set can be used as a whole, or unclasped and divided between children for independent or competitive play. The variety of unique challenges presented in each deck was carefully selected to encourage children to take a closer look and think outside-the-box about their outdoor surroundings.

The majority of the cards are appropriate for any given setting, season, and climate. Because settings vary so much, there will always be a few too-easy cards (a pine cone in an evergreen park in Idaho, or a pinch of sand outside a beach-house in Maine), as well as a few that are near-impossible (a pine-cone in Hawaii, or moss in Vegas). In between the extremes, you'll find plenty of just-rights, like "beautiful weeds", "signs of hair set free", "a jagged edged leaf", "a forgotten toy", and others.

The original illustrations were hand drawn using colored pencils, then scanned for layout and labeling. Each set is laminated and hand trimmed, then strung onto a natural fiber strap which buttons around itself on a wool felt ball. The cards measure in the neighborhood of 2.5 x 3.75.
