If you’ve been following along with my #150hoursoutside Project this year, or if you’ve just been around the natural learning world for awhile, then you’ve likely heard the phrase: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.” And while I believe that to *almost* always be the case, the reality is that sometimes… there IS such a thing as bad weather.
Sometimes – we just can’t go outside safely. And that is perfectly ok.
SO… what do you do when you’re used to spending time outdoors and for whatever crazy weather reason, you’re stuck inside?
I recently shared inside the #150hoursoutside Facebook Group about this little Pocket Bear that I made for my sons for Christmas to take on their adventures throughout the year, and the feedback was immediate: YES, WE WANT THEM! I believe these adorable little bears will become our “official” #150hoursoutside mascots, and I cannot WAIT to start seeing these little creatures pop up in photos all around the world!
It’s that time of year again! Time for the Holiday Gift Guide, especially for your adventurous, curious natural learners! Instead of scrambling at the last minute, fighting the crowds, or worrying about picking out that “perfect gift” for the natural learner in your life, check out this carefully curated list of my favorite gifts that you’ll find under my tree this year! This is also a great link to pass along to grandparents or family members who are asking for ideas for the kids.
This list is broken down into some “must-haves” for all of your natural learners, tons of other gift ideas, and even gifts for the parents (the holidays aren’t just for kids, after all!). Even better… most of the gifts that you’ll find on the list this year are from small, family-run businesses, who literally do a happy dance with each order and item that are purchased. As a small, family business myself, I know how special it feels to be supported in the work that I do.
