Savour Sunset - A precious way to end the day, sit outside with your children as the sunsets. Talk about the colours, and the changes in the sky that happen each day.
Greet the Gardens - Many botanic gardens are free to enter. Get in touch with nature, and enjoy a family stroll on the weekend. Show your children the plants they haven't seen in their backyard or at school.
Bask at the Beach - Running barefoot in the sand is a great experience, and a great texture for toddler's to explore (just be prepared for sand galore in the car on the way home). Best of all, the beach is a great free outing in the warmer months, and (rugged up) a great opportunity in winter to watch the waves roll and crash against the shore.
Say Goodnight to the Moon - Starting with the full moon, try taking your children outside before bed and showing them the moon lit up against the night sky (and hopefully the stars too!). Throughout the month, you can show them how the moon changes shape, until the full moon appears again.
More fun tips and ideas
Mix it up: Choose a different location to watch the sunset each week - from your backyard, deck or balcony / from a grandparent's place / from the beach / from a lookout.
Create a Family Ritual: - Make watching the sunset or searching for the moon and stars a weekly ritual for your family.
* Get in Touch with Nature: Choose a nature spot (botanic garden, lakes, parks, beach, wetlands) to visit each month as a family.
