Get Outside! July 25, 2014

Atlanta boasts quite a bit of green space for a big city.  Many houses have wooded yards, the Beltline cuts through some gorgeous areas, and Piedmont Park is 185 acres right in the middle of the city. How about taking an adventure to the great outdoors around us and taking the family on a nature treasure hunt? Send out your little adventurers in search of pinecones, funny-shaped rocks, ferns, and bugs.  Encourage them build fairy houses out of twigs and leaves. Let them stay up a little past their bedtime to have a night picnic and keep watch for fireflies. Give them little notebooks to catalog their outdoor findings. Have a fun en plein air watercolor session outside!

Our city has so much to offer and sometimes nature can be the best teacher.  Let’s get outside!
