Getting Started - Tips for Successful Outings
Teaching kids about the outdoors
by keclectic

One of the things I think outdoor outings lend themselves to is teaching children about nature and the natural world.  When I take my child on an outing I want her to know about the environment.  How and when to have a safe fire and the "leave no trace"  philosophy. Being outdoors is fin but it is also a chance to teach our children about caring for our planet. Have there been ways that you have incorporated lessons about our world in your outings with your family? Kai

Tip of the Day

Feed the Birds: Set up a bird feeder (you can make a simple one by spreading peanut butter on a pinecone). See which types of birds come; have the kids keep a log of their visits.
