As the days grow longer and the seasons become warmer, it’s natural to find yourself longing for the adventure of the outdoors. School is beginning to wrap up for the year and it’s important to find something to keep your kids occupied and engaged for the long summer break lest they turn their unfocused energy on terrorizing your house. Pair the two together and it’s easy to find yourself scrambling to find things to do that both keep your entire family interested while taking advantage of the beautiful weather.
An easy and often local solution is blazing the trails around your home. Most states are full of parks and paths for families to enjoy and what better way to help your kids slow down and enjoy the peace of nature than to show them how to journal about it. It’s an activity that has benefits for any age and any level of outdoorsing.
