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!
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~

Pink Ixora
We spotted pink ixora!

 

After that, we played soccer game together *yay*. I’m still kicking dou’ *lol*

Ant House
KiruaMi-cHan found an ant-house while playing soccer game.

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!

He brought us to Fish Shop and bought a new pet! *yatta*

PaPa asked us to choose 4 of ’em; as 1 each for KiruaMi, ReiHi, YunaFi and new baby *inside tummy; which our kiddies called – Hideaki*

There were; Neon Tetra fishes, orange color. Our kiddies named those as; Nemo, Elmo, Sumo, Tomo 😀

 

New Pet; Fish
Our new pet; Neon Tetra fishes!

New Pet; Fish
After feeding fish food!

 

Cost to care of Neon Tetra fish:

Fish Tank Set (fish tank, fish food, pebbles, lil plants, chlorine) : MYR 22.00
Fish (neon tetra type) :  MYR 1.00 each

Our total spend: MYR 26.00
Result: Bundles of joys from our  beloved kiddes! PRICELESS!

I justed surf the Internet, today’s morning, on tips how to take care of Neon Tetra fishes plus details about those lovely fishes. *gonna tell my kiddies touching on this matter today! yay!*

I even took video of those fishes for them *cheers*.

Will update about this soon; need a lil time due to require PaPa‘s help on editing the vids.

Take great care all *ja ne* 😀
