Winter is almost upon us and honestly, I’ve got the hardest time convincing myself to get outside and play with the kids. It’s one thing if it’s beautiful and snowing out, but it’s another if it’s just cold and gray, and let’s face it… ugly. I’m NOT a fan of cold weather, but there’s one thing I’ve learned since we started traveling full time, and that is that you’ve got to dress right if you want to enjoy the seasons! I’ve also learned that if you keep yourself cooped up in the house (or RV in our case), especially with small kids all day, you will go insane. It’s basically inevitable.

We are a family of nature lovers during all of the other seasons, so I make it a point to get outdoors daily during the winter. We bundle up in our hats, coats, and oakiwear boots, and head outdoors. You would not believe how wonderful the fresh cold air feels when you are dressed right and you’ve been cooped up in the house for what seems like an eternity.
Our last few printables have done so awesome on the site, that I made a new one for FREE! It’s an insect identification printable made just for little ones.
This one is great becasue it gets your kids involved with nature and encourages them to ask some questions about the critters they find. Help them find the answers mama! That’s when they learn the most- finding answers to questions they actually want to know the answers to.
If your little ones are interested in learning about insects, you can find some resources that I’ve gathered up below. Some are affiliate links, however we have personally used these resources and love them!
Our kids LOVE doing nature scavenger hunts when we go on nature hikes, or even just while playing in the backyard. We always love coming up with things for them to find that really get their little minds going. We enjoy them so much, that we decided to make a free nature scavenger hunt printable for kids to share!
