Take your girls on a hike and ask them to listen for birds and look for birds and any signs of bird nests. If you want to have the girls learn more about different kinds of birds they see a great bird guide that is for kids is the “Bird, Nests, and Egg Guide.” Of course remind them we do not disturb or touch nature, but let’s look and learn.

t can honestly be a bit difficult to get kids excited about learning. Kids are stuck in school for close to eight hours a day, so it’s understandable that they’re going to have little-to-no interest in learning during their after-school activities.
