THEY’LL THINK YOU’RE SMART ?

THERE’S AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED – WITH YOUR CHILDREN – OUTDOORS – WHERE LEARNING CAN BE A FUN-FILLED EXPERIENCE.

Become engaged with nature and take advantage of all its wonder…then pass it on to the kids!

Below are a few simple bits of information that can jumpstart an interesting conversation, inspiring young minds to learn more.

The SUN and STARS

The sun is a bright ball made of super-hot gases and it is considered a star. On a clear, cloudless evening, take a look into the sky and every star you see is actually another sun, just very, very far away!

FOSSIL FUELS

Common fossil fuels are COAL, NATURAL GAS, and PETROLEUM (OIL). Scientists believe that these fuels came from the dead remains of organisms, underground, such as plants and animals. The amount of fossil fuels on our planet is “finite”, meaning that once used up, they are gone and not nonrenewable.

FIRE

A single candle flame burns around 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s hot!

Friends at a campfire

Fire is a chemical reaction that releases heat and light. It requires fuel, air(oxygen) and heat to burn. It can be very useful as the heat can be used for cooking food and keeping warm. A good example is a campfire. Before you take the kids on their next camping trip, make sure to get our FREE Camping book. You can download it HERE.

TREES

Trees are tall plants made from wood.  They can live for thousands of years. Paper is made from trees along with a countless number of products such as guitars, pianos, baseball bats, hockey sticks and bowling pins. Trees are a natural, renewable energy resource in that they can be reproduced (grown) to continuously provide useful products. But also, the wood from trees can be used as firewood, a fuel used to keep us warm and cook our food. Discover more facts about trees in our FREE TREE BOOK…get it HERE!

TURN YOUR KIDS ON TO THE AMAZING…the WILDLIFE…the OUTDOORS. THERE’S A WHOLE NEW WORLD OF FASCINATION WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED.

OUTDOOR ADVENTURES with AMAZING BENEFITS

GET OUT OF YOUR HOUSE

Immerse yourself within a forest with its ever-changing wildlife and let Mother Nature surprise you (she will). BUILD A CAMPFIRE. There’s no better way to take in the outdoors than having a woodfire as your centerpiece for good times with family and friends. Toast a marshmallow or grill a hotdog. Have a drink and enjoy the flames as they conjure up good spirits in a relaxing atmosphere. COOK DINNER OUTDOORS on your patio or choose to dine at a restaurant that offers outside seating. It’s true, somehow food does taste better when eating outdoors.

THE GREAT OUTDOORS IS CALLING YOU

Ride a bike through a local park, along a mountain trail or in your neighborhood. Enjoy the natural surroundings as you coast under the trees, with leafy green bushes and plants on both sides. Exercising outdoors benefits the mind, body and soul. SPEND MORE TIME ON YOUR PORCH, balcony or deck. Enjoy the weather as you read the paper, check your email or sit down with a favorite book. Take in a nap and let a mild breeze be your blanket. Sleep never felt so good breathing in the fresh, outside air. Find a place in the evening hours where you can GAZE AT A SKY FILLED WITH STARS AND PLANETS. Do it with friends and discover fun and interesting conversation. It’s amazing how peaceful and calm the great sea in the sky can make you feel. WALK ALONG A COUNTRY ROAD and make sure to note the beautiful landscape without the clutter of city traffic and noise. Discover true peace and tranquility with every step as you become aware of your surroundings. LISTEN TO YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC, often, and take it with you outside. And for “your eyes only”, the great outdoors becomes a spectacular movie complete with your own personal soundtrack.

 ENJOY MORE TIME NEAR LAKES, STREAMS AND FORESTS

….and daydream as you become aware of your surroundings. This is called relaxing. WALK WITH SOMEONE YOU LOVE, on a beautiful day, and remind yourself how happy you are. Do it now. ENJOY A SLOW CRUISE IN YOUR CAR WITH THE WINDOWS DOWN. Get lost on unfamiliar less-traveled roads and enjoy the great feeling of the wind blowing through your hair. SPEND VACATIONS AWAY FROM HOME and travel to destinations that have wide open spaces, clean fresh air and a place to “chill”. It’s life-changing.

Spend time outside.  Invigorate your mind, body and soul.

Choose the outdoors, Mother Nature is waiting for you.

Enjoy your freedom,
