Hike It Up! Love the outdoors? Plan a family outing, immersed in the natural beauty of your own backyard or try one of the many local hiking spots. For those in the family less interested in “hiking,” try phrasing it as “adventuring” and get the kids involved in the preparation process. Have them help you look it up on a map, help you pack snacks and water bottles, and select the best clothing. Take advantage of this opportunity with learning the different types of tress or plants you might see, or make a game of it—the first to identify five different plants gets to pick a post hiking snack. Even the less adventurous or experienced ones will enjoy it.
