What's your favorite affordable outdoor activity to do with your kids?
My girls and I love to keep nature journals. We go for walks at parks & around the neighborhood - or we just sit in the backyard - and we record what we see, hear, feel, smell, etc. Nature journaling outside allows kids to become more observant of, and reflective about, the world around them - skills that will serve them well their entire lives! Plus, it exposes them to creative & technical writing, layout & presentation of ideas, self confidence & self expression, focus & meditation, and more! Nature journaling is super affordable - all you need is a blank book, or some blank paper bound togehter, and pens, pencils, crayons (you choose). Any outside location (or window seat) will do for this outdoor activity!
