Nowadays, getting close and bare to nature is the two important things to be introduced to the children. Both can be the helps for their growth and can also get them away from the electronic gadgets such as gaming on mobile phones, watching tv and many more that make the children have less physical activity especially at outdoors.
Today, children aren’t also being so active at the fresh open air where we know that doing physical activities can be the best thing to get a better health for theirselves, physically and mentally.
So that, if you have the kids, you’d better stimulate them to be at outdoor while getting rid of their gadgets and start introducing them with some exercises or as simple as introducing them to the nature and the environment so they can be slowly understand how important it is for all of us to preserve the nature.
Fun ways to make the children closer to nature
There is a term called as the “Nature Deficit Disorder” by Richard Louv in his book titled as “The Last Child in the Woods.” The term is referring to the children who only get the less chance for experiencing the outdoor activities.
You’d better read the book to know more about that. And if you are thinking that your children might have got the less outdoor experiences, you’d better start to think about the ways how you can do that.
Especially for the children that are requiring the fun and interesting ways to do something so they can really have a high enthusiasm in doing things at outdoor. That’s why I am here to show you some of them.
I. Make a schedule for the nature’s travel destination
Travel destinations such as the zoo, educational themed parks, etc are the first thing you should have in mind when its come to think about the best recommended place to introduce your kids about the nature.
It is because you may don’t have the fun ways to make your own kids to be interested about what you are going to tell them. And you may need more preparations that could consuming your times.
So that, it is better for you to look for the nearby destinations that you will only accompanying them to there while they can get more information through the guide at the zoo or educational park while you can “steal” one or two moments to explain about the environment to them.
II. Give the kids a chance to experience the hammock camping
Hammock camping gives us the chance for the journey that hasn’t been experienced and touched before.
The best thing about that is, it can be experienced by everyone including the children themselves which is surely with the supervision by the adults or the parents.
Another interesting thing to think about getting the experiences of hammock camping is that, it can be one of the fun ways you can do to introduce your children about the nature.
Camping is fun for most of us.
And I do believe that the children will also feel the same and even more. You can then use the hammock either in the house or at the backyard of your resident while inviting in the kids and start telling acknowledge them about the nature through stories or the book.
You can also try to encourage yourself to invite the kids to the other spots for camping so they will be at the more fresher air destinations and start doing all the camping activities that may contributing to the kids knowledge about the nature.
If you are looking for the more fun and interesting way to introduce your children to the environment, hammock camping is truly my first recommendation.
