If we can’t camp… we hike!
Let’s be real… I would love to camp every weekend, even once a month would be amazing – but that’s a lot of work. So we resort to hiking!
Hiking can be an amazing experience for your kids. Not only are they getting some exercise, but you can talk to them about nature, rock formations, creatures you see… anything!! Before you head out on a trail, do a little research. Find out something interesting about the area or the terrain and share it with them while hiking. Bring a compass and have some fun on pretend treasure hunt exploration. Soon you’ll discover that your kids want their own camelbacks, binoculars and are ready to explore. Life is beautiful!
