It’s Earth Day – Time to Think Outdoors and About the Environment

Here are some ideas for Spring and having kids engage with our environment now that Spring has sprung and it is Earth Day.All pictures were taken by me at Toy Fair New York.

The Camp Game by Education Outdoors

The Camp Game was the first game developed by a small company called Education Outdoors  and I met the owner/developer at the 2015 Toy Fair in New York.  Tim had a small, but eye catching booth and I talked to him about his products.  He said, “It is our mission to bring families together to interact and learn about the outdoors.”  Check out their website here.   This is a major award winner Dr. Toy awards.

I loved this natural twig colored pencil set also.

Frog Watch:  7 Inch Frogs by Wild Republic

All of these various frogs have sound that have been recorded in the wild with the sound being by the actual frogs.  1 out of 3 amphibians are threatened with extinction.  Part of the profits of this product goes to save the amphibians.  This very authentic product is often sold in museum stores and they are also available at Amazon.

Here is a sampling of these product lines available at Amazon:

How cute these are! My little grandsons play camp all of the time, I may order these. I have not seen them before. If I do, I will go thru your blog.
