It’s amazing to just sit back and take it all in sometimes. Reply Jeanette on May 23, 2016 at 5:24 pm We love to go treasure hunting. I am always trying to find something to hide and make a map for my son to go find it! It is a lot of fun! Reply Annemarie LeBlanc on May 23, 2016 at 5:52 pm I wish I could go star gazing every night. However, when you were born and raised in the city, it would not be that easy. I loved treasure hunting activities with my children when they were young. It is something we can do both indoors and outdoors. Reply Cindy Ingalls on May 23, 2016 at 8:08 pm So many great ideas for helping books come to life. I used to love exploring in my backyard or watching the stars when I was a kid. It till holds fond memories. Reply Liz Mays on May 23, 2016 at 9:45 pm I love these ideas. Decorating their own wands would be so much fun. A big treasure hunt with a map would be amazing too. Reply Elizabeth O. on May 23, 2016 at 9:46 pm These are awesome activities to do with the kids! I will never grow tired of stargazing especially if it’s with the people I love. Stars are so beautiful and they should be appreciated! Reply Dawn McAlexander on May 23, 2016 at 11:15 pm I used to pretend that my backyard was a completely different world when I was little. There are a lot of adventures to be had right there. Reply Nicole Etolen on May 25, 2016 at 1:40 pm Me too! It was populated with all sorts of magical creatures. It was just me, my dog and my own little world. Reply Karlaroundtheworld | Karla on May 23, 2016 at 11:23 pm I love the fun with that plan. Our little Hogwarts students will be happier with the magic if we combine it with a little more effort for the map, that’s where a DIY article might come handy! Reply Nicole Escat on May 24, 2016 at 3:05 am I also love star gazing, I’m lucky that when I was little, my grandma has a huge backyard where I used to play and do some star gazing at night. Reply Ryan Escat on May 24, 2016 at 5:34 am I never knew that we can do a lot of adventures in our backyard, I would love to share some wonderful experiences with my son in our backyard. Reply Akhil Sharma on May 24, 2016 at 5:52 am This is so fun for the kid as well as for the parent. You amazingly planned everything to make precise adventures. Reply Julie Syl Kalungi on May 24, 2016 at 9:56 am Awwww my little ones aint so little anymore, but we used to love treasure hunting in our back garden and critter hunting too…when it was a wee bit warmer. Reply Rocy on May 24, 2016 at 10:00 am Such a great activity idea for kids. I must try it with mine. Thanks for sharing Reply Amy @ Marvelous Mommy on May 24, 2016 at 10:41 am Star gazing was one of my favorite things to do with my dad when I was little. I would’ve loved Geocaching as a kid though! I go Geocaching with my friends now! Reply Akash on May 24, 2016 at 11:18 am Star gazing is one of my favorite ! Reply Kathy on May 24, 2016 at 1:11 pm I love all of these. Star gazing is always amazing to see. That never gets old. My daughters and I do treasure hunts often. They have a lot of fun with them. Reply Nicole Etolen on May 25, 2016 at 1:38 pm Treasure hunting is one of my favorites too. Reply Stephanie Pass on May 25, 2016 at 2:07 am These look like amazing activities. We go lay in the backyard for star gazing with the kids. Reply Terri Beavers on May 25, 2016 at 9:01 am We’d have such a blast with these activities. My grand kids have been reading every day on their summer vacation. Reply Nicole Etolen on May 25, 2016 at 1:34 pm That’s fantastic! I always had a book in my hand as a kid. I want my son to be as voracious a reader as I was. Reply Rosey on May 25, 2016 at 6:09 pm It’s important to do whatever you can to help them get their nutrients! I like the activities.
