Naturalistic Gift-Boosting Activities

  • Getting to Know the Night Sky
    You're never too young - or too old - to learn to love the stars.

  • Follow Your Nose
    This weekend, why not stop and smell the roses... and the trees, and the donut shop, and melting snow, or fresh-mown grass. See what the nose knows about your neighborhood.

  • Flower and Leaf Preservation
    Don't wait for fall to gather up the leaves. You'd be surprised how much variety you can find in one backyard.

  • Aquarium Terrarium
    Nothing fishy in this project!

  • Build a Backyard Weather Station
    See if your kids can out guess the TV meteorologist!
