Get Some Fresh Air!

Updated: Apr 23, 2020

Hello Gardeners!

Getting fresh air and moving around outside is a great mental health booster! Today's post is all about ways to get outdoors and breathe in that beautiful fresh air! Whether it's reading in your back yard, having a picnic in a secluded corner of the park, or sitting on your front stoop to soak up some sun, safely getting outside can really help keep us healthy right now.

No matter what type of environment you live in - urban, rural, seaside, these activities works for everyone! This is a two part activity, so it's perfect if you are really looking to fill up your day with some positive pursuits .

First, is a simple #ScavengerHunt. Write out a list of at least 10-15 things to find and collect in nature. They don't have to be super specific, but adjust as needed for your area. Here is our list for reference:

Find 5 small twigs of varying colors

Find one oddly shaped leaf

Find something that has fallen off of a tree

Find 2 different types of flowers

Find a weed

Find something that is made out of wood

Find something green

Find something brown

Find 3 smooth pebbles

Find one pinch of dirt or sand

Find something brittle and dried up

Find something that smells good

Find something beautiful

Find something you don't recognize


After you've collected all (or most) of these items, bring them back to your home and make a Nature Crown! We really love this activity because the results turn out so well no matter what you've collected!

Here is what you'll need to make your crown:

1 brown paper bag
