Summertime means plenty of opportunity to get outdoors, away from TV and video games, and enjoy nature at its best. If there is a nature center in your city, check out the programs for both kids and adults – they’re usually FREE or just charge a few bucks to cover costs.
But maybe you’d rather spend some one-on-one time with your kids (and maybe a few of their friends)? Take them on a nature hike. Surely there’s a natural area within a short drive from home. Look for a big park, a nature preserve or a designated open space with trails, and hit the road.
