Now that school is almost over & going outside will be our saving grace, it’s time to start planning fun things to do with the kids at home. Our extra time together at home has given us more opportunity to teach our kids to appreciate our environment. That means celebrating the people, environments and wildlife that make our planet unique. Its been so refreshing to appreciate the beauty we have right in our own back yard.
Here are 10 outdoor fun things to do with kids at home:
We were happy to learn tricks & techniques that we would need to have a successful fishing trip right at home. Just Add Nature kits are fishing adventures in a bucket & they are available at Walmart for just under $8. There are three different kits – but I think the kids’ favorite kit was the Yum Dinger. It included Yum Training Dingers (plastic worms), training hooks, a digging tool for the kids to find their own live worms and a critter bucket (be prepared to get a little dirty).
The kids spent hours learning different rigging (hooking) techniques, while talking about the types of fish they hoped to catch and looking for live critters. Yes, they were actually looking for worms and grasshoppers while in the yard. LOL! It was so great to spend time and bond with them over something to simple.
Our backyard has been such a great escape for my family over the last few weeks! What outdoor activities have you and your family been doing?
