Time outdoors is time well spent for children and adults alike. This post is an update of one from last summer because it's important to know what to watch out for especially if you don't spend a lot of time out in nature. Today’s blog will focus on introducing children to the concept of hazards. If you and your child are already used to spending a lot of time in nature you may want to skip to the bottom of the post for some good links:)
In the last couple weeks I have several friends who have had bad outdoor experiences. This includes one child with lime disease, a parent with lime disease, and a child with poison ivy. As many families try to get in one last fun summer experience before school starts. I decided today's post would be short and practical, with helpful information - repeating some of my earlier summer nature post - in hopes that everyone enjoys their time outdoors.
No doubt about it, time outdoors in nature is time well spent for children and adults alike. It is important to know what to watch out for and what to do if a problem arises while out on a hike, playing at the beach, or wherever your wanderlust takes you. Today’s blog will focus on introducing children to the concept of hazards.
