How to Nature Walk with Baby and Toddler
Yesterday, we brought our kiddies to playground at Taman Tasik Cempaka, Bandar Baru Bangi, Selangor. *alhamdulillah*
Usually we brings them for a nature walk, 4 times per weeks. Exploring different areas and textures.
Below are some of our pictures:
Just arrived, still hot even at 5.30 pm!
In our last visited, I had introduced my kiddies to red ixora flowers, telling them about my childhood experienced on how I sipped the nectar from the flower *uh oh!* and facts in science.
But guess, what? Today we found: tadaaaa~
We spotted pink ixora!
After that, we played soccer game together *yay*. I’m still kicking dou’ *lol*
KiruaMi-cHan found an ant-house while playing soccer game.
Our family soccer game; includes me – but now I must take their pic ^_-
Candid: The King and I
Sadly, I am the one whom forgot to charge our camera’s battery. Not yet take candid pic for ReiHi-cHan and YunaFi-cHan 🙁 *uh oh, I must remember this next time!*
Oh yes, let me share some of interesting things to do with your baby and toddler by nature walk which I digested from my own practiced and tips from the Internet:
Starting to build community at home is just as important as reaching out to your neighbors.
Children who grow up with a positive togetherness based experience are more likely to give back positive to their community and world at large.
Today, why not take a nature walk?
If your toddler don’t see the community, they sure won’t care about building a better and stronger community.
You can start taking your kids on nature walks when they’re tiny little babies.
You might think a baby won’t enjoy a nature walk but I’ve seen a complete change in babies when you get them outside in the fresh air.
They open their eyes a little wider, look around, and move their faces to feel the wind on their cheeks.
You and your baby and older children can try the following:
- Walk in the rain, the sun, the clouds.
- Jump in puddles and even (gasp) roll mud through your kids fingers.
- Look for birds; get a bird book and try to name some.
- Feel the various textures of plants and flowers.
- Look for little ants on tree bark.
- Lay in the grass and watch the clouds change shape.
- Run, sing, and connect with nature *it’s totally fun!*
Get outside for a nature break at least once a day. It will do you both good and grow a nature interest in your little from day one.
May you have a great day with your family. God bless! 😉
p/s: on the way we went back home, PaPa just wanted to surprise us!
