3 simple activities for an awesome hike with kids #2


Sounds or Silence?


Sometimes, we mistake the gentler sounds of nature for silence. We're pretty accustomed to a constant barrage of sound from tv, traffic, crowds, and other sources. Close your eyes, be quiet and listen for one minute. How many different sounds do you hear? Is the forest as quiet as it seemed?

Patterns in Paradise


There are patterns all around us in nature. See if you notice any natural patterns. Try the veins of leaves, branches of trees,  flower petals, or pinecones. You can even listen for patterns in the songs of birds, as well as other animal calls and insect sounds.

All the colors of the wind


This is perfect for a fall hike when leaves are blazing with color. Can you spot every color of the rainbow on your hike? Remember ROY G. BIV to help recall the colors Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet
