Observation: Nature is Good With Kids ...

... and kids who are given plenty of time and opportunity
to enjoy nature are happier kids.

***

Down the stream I go
Splish splash, feel the water
Prawns and tiny fishes
I saw


Up, up in the air
The kite flew away
Catch them, catch them
if you can


Ocean water
Sound of waves
Rock formations
A bliss ...


Spiders come
Spiders go
Not all spiders bite
See ?


Jumping from a high rock
Into the cold pond
What a joy
What a joy!

For more observations, visit Sunday Scribblings
as well as Weekly Winners this week.

I love to see kids getting out into nature and exploring! More of that and less of the tv and x-box my Mum recently referred to my nephew's x-box as a "black box" and I'm like "Mum, that's what they retrieve from planes when they crash") I say! Great post. :)

These pics and your little poems could be gathered into a children's book! These are the most important observations!
