Have you heard of the U.K. based Woodland Trust Nature Detective program? Take a look at the website where you will find wonderful ideas for getting our kids outdoors and exploring nature.
While the focus is on nature in the U.K., many activities carry over nicely to North America, or can easily be modified to fit our unique natural habitat. For example, I modified their Autumn Scavenger Hunt to fit our area of central Pennsylvania.
Have fun out and about searching for nature's treasures this autumn.
