This morning I took the kids to the park on a bug hunt.
I was browsing on Pinterest last night (somehow I find time to do that almost every evening..) and saw these great ideas about outdoor activities to do with your kids.
I don't think a bug hunt was one of them, but I used the outdoor exploration/nature walk idea and tailored it to Ethan's current interest in bugs, and viola! A bug hunt was in the making.
We drove to a nearby park (you could do this in your own backyard of course, but we just wanted to get out of the house) and started poking around near the trunks of the huge old Acorn trees.
Guess what we found?
