40+ Summer Nature Walks with FREE Printables

There is a priceless value in taking a walk and slowing down enough to notice the beauty in nature. I did this with my children when they were younger, and even now as teenagers, they are quick to point out the small things.

You know what else nature walks help to develop? An appreciation for what is easy to take for granted. I am blessed when I hear my kids notice how yellow the yolk of an egg is or the difference in tone between two bird’s songs. Many times, they hold an aesthetic appreciation for things like the steam that escapes a mug of hot cocoa.

I’m nothing special and neither are my kids to anyone but my family, but I tell you all this so you understand that you can train your children to notice, value, and hold a deep gratitude for the world around us. I cannot encourage you strongly enough to take your kids on nature walks.
