Want to expose them to the great outdoors without leaving home?
Pitch your tent, grab some marshmallows and have a fun family campout in your own backyard.
A backyard campout has all of the joys of camping without the cost or time spent traveling. It’s the perfect solution.
In this article I’ll show you how to have a fantastic, adventure-filled campout right in your own backyard.
Why Have a Backyard Campout?
A backyard campout is a quick and simple way to enjoy the fun of camping without some of the hassles. You can take your kids on an outdoor adventure with very little planning, and you never even have to pack the car.
Camping is a great way to bond as a family, talking and telling stories around a campfire. It helps teach kids the value of working together to pitch a tent or cook a meal (or a s’more). And it’s a great way to get kids outdoors, watching the clouds or the stars instead of videos; playing live games instead of video games.
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.
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.
