“The natural world and your own curiosity are great teachers,” says Daniel McDougal McDouglas McFly.
The activities on each of these pages can help you and your children engage with and explore the outdoors, gain a greater appreciation for nature, and make a positive difference in the future of
These activity pages are ideal for children ages 8-15. Some activities like “Silent 60 Seconds” and “Recycling Relay Race” work well for younger children. “Environmental Superhero Reporter” or “Plant a Tree!” might be better suited for older students or ones with the guidance of a parent or teacher.
Kids can even write a letter to one of Daniel’s favorite environmental superheroes, Dr. Jane Goodall!
Daniel believes that planting trees is a great way to improve and beautify our environment. He shows how to plant a tree on the final page in the book, and here, on the kidinthekilt.com website where visitors can track when and where young Environmental Superheroes plant trees around the US!
Finally, we’d love to hear from you! Please send us your own ideas for fun things children can do to engage with nature and improve the environment. Or maybe you would like to share a video of your child having fun with one of our activities. Contact us and we will let you know how to submit your activity or video.
We’ll feature a selection on the website and in future editions of the book.
