Frogs, Crawdads and Other Slimy Things

July 20th, 2012

I have 3 girls and do you want to know what we love to do for family fun?  It’s not very girlie!  Hunt and peck around in the mud at ponds! Overturning rocks to find crawdads. Moving the branches to find the frogs on the edge of the pond. Watching the turtles duck under the water when they see us coming.

We love to find and watch and listen to all the sights and sounds of local ponds. There is so much to see if you get down and look. You don’t have to get dirty just get closer to the grass and trees and rocks and water and really look. It’s a whole new world with new adventures when you are that close.

Family fun that includes nature can be fantastically exciting and fabulously FREE!

What are some idea you have when it comes to enjoying nature as a family? Let’s start a list…

    Sounds plenty girlie to me. You are reinforcing gender stereotypes. I assume that you are already aware of this, so why continue?
