There was a time . . . when the children playing outside, climbing trees, wading in ponds and creeks and hiding in tall grass fields was a common occurrence. They left their homes in the morning returned for a quick lunch, often eaten outdoors, and then returned to the woods, fields and ponds until evening voices called them to supper. In those special places they encountered insects, birds, mammals. They made bouquets of wildflowers, built forts and even got dirt under their finger nails.
Five Things to Do Outdoors Each Day
These are fun, easy, outdoor activities that kids can do to get more “outdoor time” and learn something about nature too!
Maybe spend a little more time outside and really explore.
Starting to get the hang of this? Soon you’ll be craving to be out side.
It’s time to get a little more adventurous and maybe get a little dirty too.
Soon you’ll be begging your parent(s) to let you go outside.
This isn’t going to be the last day! All of what you learned this week can be applied to other outdoor activities and learning.
