The holiday season is upon us, which means kids are anxiously awaiting gifts. We’ve put together a list of ideas that will inspire your children to play and explore outside, providing experiences that last a lot longer than the newest trendy toy.

  1. Digital Camera: There are a lot of inexpensive and durable digital cameras on the market now and it’s a great way to get kids to see nature from a new, thoughtful perspective.
  2. Nature and Wildlife Books: These books broaden the world for the reader. They take you on an adventure to new places and introduce new animal and plant species, while evoking imagination, emotion and empathy. Nature and wildlife books, the photographs within them, inspire young people to learn more, see more, and do more. 
  3. Bicycle or balance bike: There’s nothing better than riding a bike, except maybe finding one under the Christmas tree. We recommend shopping at bike, which operates Trips for Kids a non-profit that provides bikes and trips for young people, especially those in needy communities.

October is for Ring-Tailed Lemurs
October is for Ring-Tailed Lemurs

October 03, 2019

For many of us, the new cycle of the year begins with the first day of school. Fall functions as the welcome to the new rhythm of the year; so it’s nice to witness other new beginnings at this time. Typically fall brings with it a reprieve of the summer heat and leaves begin to color red and yellow, so it is nice to see new life spring forward. It's during this early fall that ring-tailed Lemurs welcome their babies to the world. Newborns cling to their mother’s bellies until they are confident enough to climb onto her back, where they will spend the majority of their first few months before observing survival lessons modeled by their mother. Although they breastfeed for 4 to 6 months, they do begin to climb and look for solid food with mama at about 6 weeks. Lemurs live in troops, groups that can be as small as 3 or as large as 27 lemurs, and are ruled by females. When the male offspring mature they will venture off to find a new troop, but females will typically stay with the troop that they were born into.

Here are some great ways to incorporate lemur creativity into your fall season.

After the long summer, going back to school can feel a bit daunting for our students. The transition can be especially hard for younger children who are less comfortable leaving their families for long days in the classroom. A great way to ease the transition is with read-aloud books.
