Celebrate “Take a Child Outside Week.”

Here are some fun activities you and your child can do together.

Experience the great outdoors by using your senses. 


Feel different leaves and plants. 

Are they smooth? Rough? Brittle?

This is also a great time to talk to your kids about plants in your area that are not safe or risky to touch such as, poison ivy.

Listen to the great outdoors!

In the morning, do you hear different sounds than in the evening? How are they the same? How are they different?

Enjoy the shapes of nature.

Fall is a brilliant time to explore the leaves of their shapes and colors.

Collect different leaves and trace them on a piece of paper to color later. 

Do the old fun trick of rubbing a crayon on a piece of paper with the leaf underneath.

Cut them out to make a fun display or necklace.

Create a list of things you expect to find outdoors.

Grab a bag and collect your items on a hunt for the things on your list.

Did you find some new items that you didn’t think or know about?

Check out those critter tracks!

Look for animal tracks in your backyard, the woods, or a nearby park.

Can you guess which animal left them?

Look for different insects and record in your journal.

Snap a photo of them if you can, so you can do more research on them later.  
For those that love to draw, make a sketch of them.
