Looking for things to do with your kids while stuck in quarantine? A nature park can be a fun and educational experience for your kids. The best part is most city’s nature and wildlife parks are FREE.

Hiking on well-maintained trails

Many people have cabin fever at this point, and we could all use the exercise, sunshine, and vitamin D. Being cooped up inside all day can be difficult. Hiking your local trails can be refreshing and energizing. My family was beyond excited to be outside.

Flowers

There is nothing quite like experiencing spring at a nature park. This is the time of year that wildflowers fill the fields and are in full bloom. This gave us the perfect opportunity to teach our kids about the local flowers in our home state.

My daughter ALWAYS enjoys blowing on a dandelion and making a wish.

My son ALWAYS enjoys giving me flowers every chance he gets. The Indian Blankets are in full bloom right now and they are beautiful.

Insects & Bugs

Who doesn’t like learning about insects or bugs? This is their playground and we have the chance to see them play. How cool is that!

Birding

It is always exciting to see wild birds in their natural habitat. It seems like we are always fighting over who can name the bird species first.

Playing with sticks

Hiking with a stick just makes everything more fun. My family loves to find sticks and have sword fights with them.

Exercise your imagination

The nature park is a great place for my kids to discover local nature and exercise their imagination. We called this black looking stringy material “witches hair” and we loved throwing it on each other. We still have no clue what it is.

You can find it in the trees.

We had a blast at the nature park. It was the perfect family adventure after being stuck inside for a month. As a family we were able to connect and spend some quality time together. Now it is your turn to plan your trip and go outside.
