What a Wonderful World

Look outside your window. What do you see? Maybe a tree standing tall and strong. Or a flower that is beginning to bloom, bright with color. There’s plenty to take in, isn’t there?

The world around us enlightens our senses with beautiful sights, sounds and smells. When we positively interact and support our Earth, we are also boosting our Environmental Wellness. Unfortunately, we have the tendency to get busy with our daily schedules that we forget to appreciate our environment.

Take a moment to hit the pause button, and set out on an outdoor adventure. We challenge you to find an object in your yard or at a nearby park, that you find beautiful. Here are some examples:

  • A leaf
  • A rock
  • A flower
  • A wild animal
  • A stream of water

Once you find something that catches your eye, ask mom and dad if you can snap a picture on their camera. If able, print the image out when you get home. If you are not able to take a picture on a camera, make it a new challenge by drawing a picture of the item instead.

Don’t forget to hang your picture of your nature item by your bed, or on your fridge! This will help remind you of your outdoor adventure and just how wonderful the world around us truly is.
