How do you keep kids engaged in outdoor activities around the yard or on nature walks? Always have some fun facts and tricks at the ready!
Fun facts and even a magic trick for kids:
Using a fresh acorn (not aged brown but not under ripe pure greencap) score around the top of the “hat” of the acorn with your fingernail. Tell the child to say hello to the acorn, when they do, remove the cap/”hat” and let the acorn do a tiny bow. This goes over great in our pre-school through first grade junior arborist classes! The kids then like to practice on each other!
