Families today are looking for ways to get back to nature and explore the kid friendly ‘green’ activities that cities have to offer. Here are some great summertime ideas in Boston from Leah Klein, who writes Adventures in Eco Parenting for The Family Groove:
With my kids we love to go for walks at Habitat in Belmont (Mass. Audubon). We love to swim at Walden Pond in Concord, or Morses Pond in Wellesley. We belong to an Organic CSA in Lincoln and love to go up there to pick up our fresh foods and harvest some berries, cherry tomatoes, and a bouquet of flowers every week.
Drumlin farm up in Concord or Codman Farm just nearby is fabulous for a little time to play in the dirt or visit with the animals.
We also visit the local playgrounds because so many of them have water features.
I recently wrote an article about playing in the mud…with a lot of links to activities for spring and summer.
Leah has two kids, a 2 1/2 and a 4 1/2 year old. She writes Adventures in Eco Parenting for The Family Groove, and as the Boston Food Mom and Boston Family Foodie.
