Health Tip: Take Kids for a Nature Walk
And get some exercise
(HealthDay News) -- To help children disconnect from TV, video games and light-up toys, go outside for a nature walk and get some exercise.
The Wilderness Society offers these suggestions for what to do:
- Listen to the sounds of nature, from insects to the wind in the trees.
- Bring along a camera to take pictures of interesting wildlife and plants.
- Peek under rocks to see what kinds of insects and other wildlife lurk below.
- Pack a field guide to look up birds, butterflies and more.
