With things like smartphones and other devices, sometimes it can be hard to get kids outside. But with apps, you can make getting outside easy and fun for your children this summer.
Summer is coming, and with it, long days of no school. Do you want to encourage your kids to get outside this summer? I'm going to show you how to do it using apps.
Do you have a child who loves looking at bugs? One of the best apps that you can download is one of the insect identification apps. Picture Insect is an app I use myself because sometimes, living out in the country, you encounter a bug that you can't figure out what it is. There are even apps to help you with identifying plants as well. So, these are two kinds of apps to start with.
Now, if your children aren't into bugs or plants, summer is a great time to go out and catch some creatures or defeat dark wizards. Chances are that you know about Pokemon Go. But did you know there's a similar app out there that there's one similar to that filled with dinosaurs called Jurassic World Alive? In both of these games, along with the Harry Potter one, you have to walk and explore outside to catch creatures or battle. So, it's a great way to get the kids out in the fresh air and keep them entertained at the same time.
Finally, apps let you find the stars and constellations and figure out what kinds of birds are signing based on the song. I highly recommend the Audobon Bird Guide. With so many trees in our yard and different birds, it's nice to find out what bird I hear singing. Plus, I'm terribly nearsighted, so it's not always easy to see them.
Well, there you have it. There are a few ways that you can keep your child happy while being outside and enjoying the sunshine and nature.
