Get Outdoors Challenge - Children and Nature Awareness Month

This is a challenge that I am keen to join in.....   The Get Outdoors Challenge, set up by 5 Orange Potatoes and I first saw it through Little Eco Footprints - like many others I decided it was exactly what we needed.

The challenge is in honour of Children and Nature Awareness Month and requires me to ‘go outside everyday, rain or shine; then take a picture each day, for the rest of April, of your children outdoors and post it. Just a single picture will do; words aren’t even necessary. Lets spread the word and go outdoors!’.

Sounds like fun (for me and the kids)!

As the challenge was for April... I have decided to catch up a bit in this post.. and share what we have already been doing for April... it's school holidays and we have already been outdoors lots...

identifying plants in the Blue Mountains

teaching the kids how the introduced honey bee steals nectar from our native flowers...

lunch on our bushwalk...

enjoying some bush tucker...

at the end of the Glow Worm Tunnel at Newnes - could not get a photo of the Glow Worms (Fungus Gnat Larvae)
