Counting with objects from nature

So the other day the kiddos were busy drawing with sidewalk chalk but after a while they started to get bored and a little antsy.  So I drew a grid with the numbers 1-5 in it and asked the kids to find something that was 1 or 2 etc.. They had a lot of fun with this and repeated it over and over using different objects found around the yard.  It was also a bit of a challenge finding 5 of the same things, I could see the wheels turning as they wandered the yard looking and counting.
