As we spend more time outside this time of year, it can be a lot of fun to explore nature with your kids. With these nature walk activities and fun crafts for kids that we have rounded up, you’ll find all kinds of great ideas for outdoor fun with your family. These are perfect for spring, summer, and even into the fall. You can take part in some simple activities while out for the walk and then come back and extend the fun with some great nature crafts too.
Sure, these ideas are educational, but the kids are just going to see the fun in them. While they’re learning more about the world around them, they’ll have a great time exploring and creating. Will you go on a scavenger hunt? Make a backyard mobile? Or perhaps you will gather up some rocks, paint them, and then place your friendship rocks back out in nature as a special treat for others to find. There are lots of activities to choose from here – you’re sure to find at least one your family would enjoy doing.
