Hi, new friends! I’m Lacy from Living on Love. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be a new contributor here at Kids Stuff World. I am eager to get to know you all and hope you feel the same.
Dress for the occasion – Appropriate attire is key. Toddlers especially tend to freak out if they are too cold, too hot, wet, etc. We were able to last a long time because our girls were warm and able to move around freely since they were wearing their “adventure clothes,” as we like to call them.
Take it slow – There is no rush, especially in the wilderness. Take your time and let your little ones set the pace for your adventure. Take breaks if you need to. Allow yourself to surrender to the clock and enjoy an outing free of time constraints.
Notice the details – Take time to stop and look around. Point out things you see or hear to your children. Ask them what they think is interesting or beautiful. From hollowed out logs to frozen waterfalls, our girls were amazed by the things they saw during our winter walk.
I challenge you to get outside this winter! I think you’ll be surprised just how refreshing an outdoor adventure can be for your entire family…
