When I close my eyes and try to recall the most beautiful moments of my childhood, images of the forest and mottled litter with sun shining through the branches appear in my head. There is a taste of forest raspberries, the smell of resin, the sound of trees. For as long as I can remember I loved walking in the woods and I wanted to convey this love to my children. We go to this type of trip quite often, but in today's electronic times it is not enough. The walk does not provide children with the amount of stimuli they receive while enjoying modern entertainment. How to make it not boring for them?

Talk about what is around you

When you enter the forest, draw the child's attention to the changes that you feel. Ask your child what his impressions are - he will certainly notice that it has become colder and darker or more humid and stuffy. Take advantage of these observations and tell about the sun's rays, explain why it is cooler in the shade.

After the rain, when it is sultry in the forest, explain why this is happening. Why is the mulch drying more slowly and that the treetops are a barrier to free evaporation?

Observe how the vegetation changes on the border between the meadow and the forest (grass passes through the mulch, densely growing shrubs on the edge of the forest are becoming rarer, etc.). Ask your child to point out plants that are in the meadow and are no longer in the forest, and vice versa. The next time you visit the same place, check how the plants change as the seasons change.
