Taking flight

With our “Butterflies on the Wing” trip to Emmenegger Nature Park coming up soon, I thought I would mention several articles on the topic of kids and nature.

First up, is a great story entitled “Children and the Forest” by Dr. Steven Farmer over at Care2.

Then there are two by one of my favorite writers over at Care2, Eric Steinman. They are “That is Dirty! Put it in your Mouth: Healthy Immune Systems through Dirt” and “Outside with your Kids!

Follow that with another great article, “Teach Your Children Empathy” from Seventh Generation. This sounds just like my younger two kids.

Last, but not least, there is this one (this one sounds like my daughter), “Can Your Child Love Nature Too Much?” from the Nature Conservancy. Some of those articles maybe a little old but, none the less, Good Stuff!
