Here are 5 activities you can do with your buddy outdoors while social distancing:
- Be a photographer
Bring along a camera or phone to take photos of wildlife, then you can print the pictures with your buddy and do a collage.
- Bring a nature collector jar
The “nature collector” jar is perfect for keeping treasures like leaves and small stones.
- What bird is that?
Ever wondered who was making that twittering noise? With this webpage you can identify some common birds by the sounds they make. Though there are no guarantees that you’ll hear a penguin in the woods!
- Pick up supplies for a DIY insect house
You can go for a nature walk with your buddy and take rocks, pine cones, bark, or twigs from your location and then build a DIY insect house together.
- Scavenger hunt
You can bring a list of things you want to look for with your buddy outdoors and look for them together. You can download a very fun list here: https://www.doinggoodtogether.org/bhf/nature-scavenger-hunt
