How to Keep Kids Entertained and Educated Outdoors!

Within our last news article we noted that we were taking a side-step from our regular posts about architectural trends at Lake Tahoe and Truckee to provide a lighter-side of news you can use.

Today we’re headed into the great outdoors to share some tips to help you keep your kids get more educated and entertained on the outside of your home.

We’ve always enjoyed exploring our own backyard in Incline Village, NV.  Our home sits on a well-defined slope that literally drops down into one of the region’s most beautiful forested areas – complete with a river running through it.  It’s the perfect place to escape and explore of the best of Mother Nature.

Whether your home is in a forest or branches out to a grass-covered lawn, both are wonderful opportunities to get your children outside to explore and learn all about the value of playing outside – unplugged.

To help you jump-start a new way to play, outdoors, we’ve done some research for you.

There’s a terrific resource through Cornell University’s Lab of Ornithology.

Within this organization, and its website, you will find an excellent resource for kids of all ages.   From nature scavenger hunts, to bird books and guides, to many more seeing, reading, and writing resources to help you explore the great outdoors, we know you will find a variety of opportunities to enjoy family life, outdoors all summer long.  Here is one of the hundreds of resources:

Finally, here are some quick links to get you on your way:

Grades 3 – 5

Grades 6 – 8

If you want more ideas on where to explore the great outdoors in Truckee, Lake Tahoe or the Carson Valley, contact me at any time!  It’s highly likely I’ve been out to get some fresh air and unplug in my own backyard.
