Project Learning Tree Nature Activities For Parents

Introduce children to nature and their environment. These fun and easy-to-do activities can be used while you explore your own backyard, visit a local park, or walk in the woods—as well as indoors! Suitable for children ages 3–15, some activities work better for younger children, others are more suited for older children. The way you present them will change depending on your child’s knowledge and ability.
