  • All of the above are good ideas. You can also just walk around your block, and show her things. There is a major intersection 2 blocks from our house, and we could easily spend 30 or more minutes just sitting in the grass near the intersection and watching the cars and people go by. Go outside and look for animals! I like to point out cats, dogs, birds, lizards, frogs, etc. It's amazing what wildlife you can find even in an urban neighborhood (tadpoles in gutters, stray kittens behind the dry cleaners, herons near the bayou, etc.) Or look for flowers and let her paw at them. :) And parks don't have to be for kids (with playgrounds and stuff). There is a really nice water fountain/grassy spot in front of a hospital 4 blocks away. Go explore!

  • Take her to the park. It only cost gas. You can bring snacks and drinks from home.

  • Go to Bass Pro shop, public park, local school or apartment play ground, play in a creek

  • Sebbiemma, I really like your answer even though we see animals and wildlife all the time because we live in the middle of nowhere, but I didn't specify that. It's still a very good answer
