How to Have a Backyard Birdwatching Adventure With Your Kids

Do you remember spending hours outside exploring as a kid?

Looking for a way to share some of that fun with your own children?

Birdwatching is a great way to get the family out of the house and into nature.

In this article, I’ll show you how to have a birdwatching adventure with your kids from your own backyard and I’ll share a few projects and activities to make the experience last long after the birds have flown away.

Discover how to have a birdwatching adventure with your kids from your own backyard and how to make the experience last long after the birds have flown away.

Why Go Birdwatching?

Birdwatching will open up worlds to your kids that they never knew existed.

Exploring the great outdoors through birdwatching—even if it’s as close as your own backyard—gives you an opportunity to talk to your kids about how they see the world around them and what it means to them.

It gives your child a chance to discover and connect with the natural world.

Plus, it’s a fun way for your family to spend some time together outside.

Read on for ways to get the kids off the couch and into the great outdoors, loving their new feathered friends.
