Health Tip: Take Kids for a Nature Walk

(HealthDay News) -- To help children disconnect from TV, video games and light-up toys, go outside for a nature walk and get some exercise.

The Wilderness Society offers these suggestions for what to do:

  • Listen to the sounds of nature, from insects to the wind in the trees.

  • Bring along a camera to take pictures of interesting wildlife and plants.

  • Peek under rocks to see what kinds of insects and other wildlife lurk below.

  • Pack a field guide to look up birds, butterflies and more.
