Outdoor activity ideas and inspiration

From mid-March to the end of May 2020, Harpswell Heritage Land Trust (HHLT) posted a simple outdoor activity idea and nature riddle for kids every weekday. Some days we also posted other resources, like downloadable chapters of the Junior Ranger Activity Book.

Created to support parents who found themselves homeschooling during the COVID-19 pandemic, these activity ideas are a great jumping off point for any outdoor adventure. Click here for a list with links to all 50 activity ideas.

What’s worth saving? A question and a read aloud from Julia McLeod

Watch Julia read “Luna & Me: The True Story of a Girl Who Lived in a Tree to Save a Forest” and think about what’s worth saving. What secret spot, natural area, plant or animal do you want your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to experience?

Have your children make a drawing or write a story about what they think is worth saving in nature!
