I am a single mom and am doing everything I can to raise my kiddos. I wanted to take them camping, but gas is approaching $4 here and I have almost zero extra money. I have decided that we will go "camping"...except it will be in my parents BIG backyard and not at the lake (which is over an hour away). Can you PLEASE help me come up with some other ideas of things we can do that weekend, that revolve around nature? Thank you sooo much!!Answer Question

Make nature pals http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/personalized-nature-pals-672777/
Or a nature mobile http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/nature-mobile-785021/
Go on a themed "hike" and see if they can find something in every color of the rainbow, or something in different shapes (find a circle, a square, etc) or something that starts with each letter of the alphabet.
Have a nature scavenger hunt - find a smooth rock, a jagged leaf, a flying creature, etc.

hiking, fishing, hunting, nature walks, bird watching, roasting marshmellows, and spotting and learning about local wildlife! we always do a big camping trip ( not last year tho :( , and we love to do all of these, it also gets some learning snuck in there...lol
