FC: Together In Nature | By Tony Colello
1: For my future child, I believe children should bond with their parents outside. Playing outdoors can really be good for children stretching their curiosity and creativity skills. Also parents should be an active partners playing with their child and the play should be unstructured by letting the child make their own game and make their own rules. Parents, who show good ethics outside, like picking up trash, will have their children doing that as well. Playing outside should be a commitment between parents and children.
2: Natures Show and Tell- Children love collecting objects in nature. A child may find a cool looking rock they would like to share Strites Orchard- Strites Orchard is a great place in the area for children to explore nature. Their address is 1000 Strites Rd Harrisburg Scavenger Hunt- find three pinecones, five leaves, and seven acorns | Developmentally Appropriate Activities
3: Healthy Snack- Apple is a delicious snack to prepare as a sandwich with peanut butter on it. Children's house of Hershey is a museum that is very good with kids A Stone Mosaic is a great creative craft to do out side. Grow a plant and go for a nature walk can be fun for kids to do. | Developmentally Appropriate Activities

Don't shower, bathe or touch water. Drowning Understand that younger children can drown at any moment, even in an inch of water.
