It’s Take A Child Outside Week

Today starts “Take A Child Outside Week“, an initiative by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science.  I have to thank my friend Carrie Lauth from Natural Mom Talk Radio for bringing this to my attention.

This event runs from September 24th through September 30th and is designed to remind us how important it is to get our kids outside to explore nature.

The website includes some great tips and ideas for outdoor activities as well as a list of partnering organizations in your area. Feel free to glance through those for ideas.

Here are some of the things we do around here to play outside:

– Go on a nature walk. Walk through a field or forest and talk about what types of plants and animals you see.

– Go outside to collect leaves, sticks and various seeds and nuts. Then come inside and make a collage.

– Build a fort or tree house.

– Plant something.

– Just go outside to play catch or ball.
