Holly A. Hunter replied to Jeanine Silversmith's discussion First Steps: How (and why) I Started a Family Nature Club in the group C&NN Natural Families Network
"Wonderful article!  Thanks for sharing.  I'm really curious about the RIFIN app that was created for your club.  Was this something that was very difficult to do or do you just need the right talent?  I'm also curious…"

"I couldn't agree with you more.  Children need to learn to be creative in their outdoor play.  My kids played  all kinds of make believe games and played outside in our yard and in the neighborhood with the other kids. …"

Muscle memory of the mind...

Muscle memory of the mind...I was having a discussion with a pregnant friend the other day and she was commenting on how much bigger she looked this time around. She said her doctor told her that just like "muscle memory" her body has "pregnancy memory". Since the muscles have already been stretched…See More

"Nature-Underprivileged" Youth

I had an interesting conversation recently around the idea of the "underprivileged" or the "underserved."  This typically refers to those that have fewer resources available to them.  Less money, less formal education, fewer opportunities, etc. But, when it comes to children and Nature Deficit Disorder I think that many financially privileged children will fall into the "underprivileged" category primarily because they are over-scheduled by their parents thus not allowing them enough…See More

Bugs! Just one more way to connect with my kids in nature...

Over the past few years I've worked hard to overcome my fear of bugs.  Not that I was deathly afraid or anything, but I'll admit that they really creeped me out.  But, as I mentioned in an earlier blog post, my son Jack is extremely interested in bugs and seems to have a real knack for finding the coolest most colorful ones around.  …See More

Half Dome Family Portrait

"We did NOT actually climb up to Half Dome.  This photo was taken at Glacier Point.  The kids were so young here...5 and 8 I think.  This was a totally cool rock that jutted out over a walkway below...was a little high but not too bad.…"

Half Dome Family Portrait

"I love the angle on this shot!  Did you hike the whole canyon rim and eventually get to climb up Half Dome?  We were up there a few years ago and what a memorable hike.  Must be something for your two kids!"

Take the kids camping, but leave the toys behind!

Ladder Toss, cornhole, paddle ball, croquet, badmitten, bocce ball, Frisbee, horseshoes, ring toss, wiffle ball.  These are just a few of the many outdoor games you'll find at your local sporting goods store.  I admit I have more than a few of them. But recently I've started leaving them behind when we go camping.…

Through the eyes of a child

As I was hiking this weekend a small caterpillar crawling on the ground near my feet caught my eye.  I immediately stopped to observe and said out loud "Thanks Jack!"  I was referring to my 8 year old son Jack who's constantly discovering tiny little creatures right at his feet.  When he makes these…

Hi Holly, Thank you for the Friendship on C&NN.. I see you are in AZ, I am in Mesa, we are a bit of a distance, but it would be nice to connect sometime...

Holly,

Your muscle memory post was awesome.  Those of us who share those same experiences in childhood (me in Sacramento, California) can totally relate.  So glad we were able to meet in San Diego.  Thanks so much for your work with kids and for sharing your thoughts on C&NN Connect.  Hope our paths cross again soon.  All the best,  John

That's a great idea! Just let us know if you're heading out our way. We love AZ too so perhaps we can meet there sometime.

Hi Holly,

 

Welcome! It was great meeting you at the Gathering. Wish we had had more time to talk, but at least you and Janice got to talk. We can continue to swap stories and share experiences and figure out how best to make these clubs work, together.

Hi Holly! Welcome to the forum. I'm glad you found us and are already involved with a nature family club. Your pictures are terrific. I'm sure you'll want to connect with the folks in our Nature Club for Families group, among others. I hope you make yourself at home and find the forum a rich source of resources and camaraderie.
