I’m happy to say I’ve started contributing articles to the new Treehouse Parents site. Yes, it’s the same Treehouse as the TV channel, Canadian home of one of my son’s favourites shows ever, the Octonauts. I’ll give you a nudge when I’ve got something new to share over there.
You can check out my first piece for them, an outdoor nature hunt. I came up with this idea because most of the other nature scavenger hunts I had seen around involved picking things. I don’t encourage picking plants unless we’re harvesting to eat or helping it grow. Besides, then I have to find a place for more rocks and sticks in house! I have enough trouble with rock collections without inviting more.
