Fearless Feeder

We explored the forest at Princess Park in North Vancouver and also paused for a snack there.

There are tons of great things to pick at, touch and uncover.  This park is a wonderful setting for learning about nature and all its beautiful elements.  Amongst the highlights are plenty of hiking trails, a playground for kids, a bridge that crosses a rocky stream, gigantic looming trees and huge moss covered rocks.

If you have a dog, it’s a great open space to let the dog off the leash.  When ever we are here, we meet some wonderful dog owners who let R pet their dogs and give them treats.  I’m so proud of how fearless she is!  Many times, she has put a treat right into a dog’s mouth!

Extend the Learning:
Provide vocabulary for objects your child is interested in. R loves to collect rocks and sticks, so I name these objects for her and encourage her to use the vocabulary herself. Through rich shared experiences in nature, R can now identify rocks and sticks and use both terms.
