In the Backyard


As you lounge and play in your backyard this summer, take a minute to observe nature with your child. Plan a night to go backyard camping, and observe the night sky. Break out the magnifying glass and take a close-up look at all the critters that live in the grass and garden. Talk about the weather, and how rain and sun are necessary for plants and animals to thrive. Just a few minutes in your backyard can open your child's eyes to all that is thriving back there!
