Discovering nature

And winter came. And we want sledding. And it got colder. The kids said that they’ve already went sledding. And now, what should we do with our kids? How to get them, and yourselves, to get out? What should we do, if the weather is doing everything to discourage us, the parents, from getting out? We have a proposition for you. All you need is some motivation, positive energy and the will to spend time together with your kids. But you are reading this article, after all, so you are ready.

Discovering Adventures

 This game is intended for parents that are brave and not afraid of challenges.

 Benefits from the game:

* enhancing resistance
* developing relations
* getting to know ourselves and our kids
* learning together
* spending time together

You need to remember that you will be cold, dirty, but proud, satisfied and integrated with your kids.

 All you need to do is prepare yourselves and the kids. You need to be warm, but not too warm. You needs: waterproof pants (ski pants are the best), warm jackets with hoods, waterproof shoes and gloves. Take a thermos with something warm to drink and some food in a backpack.  Find an interesting spot near your home, a park, a forest or a lake.

Make your children participate in the preparations. Let them see that you are happy to go with them in spite of bad weather, let them notice real commitment.  If your kids want to take their favorite items with them, let them. You can ask them what according to them will be needed outside during winter, as well. How should we dress? And so on.

 The game is all about going to the park, forest together and looking for animals, plants which should be there even in spite the cold weather. You can search under leaves and branches. Your proper clothes should let you get yourselves dirty.  Have a great time, discover nature with your kids. We recommend making a stop to drink a warm fluid, kids just love breaks.

 Describe the weather, try to guess the temperature. Experiment with the snow and warm water. Be creative! Maybe you’ll be able to make a fire?

 Have fun.
