Nurture Your Child’s Natural Curiosity & Urge to Learn in Your Own Backyard! by Pam McCormick
Within your own backyard is a world of opportunity. You can discover new things that aren’t necessarily obvious to the human eye. Be an explorer! Walk off the path. Peek under rocks. Find a wildflower. Look for “fairy houses” or other interesting objects – the possibilities are endless.
Continue the fun after your exploration!
- Collect rocks, leaves, anything that moves you or your child. Keep them in a secret “nature box” that you can hide outside to add more to later. You could even start a small nature journal of your findings to place in your box.
- Take a photo of items you find and look them up online to learn more about your discoveries. You can turn your outdoor expedition into a learning opportunity, with movement and quality time.
Just a few steps away from your home, there is an adventure to be had…
What will YOU find?
