As summer approaches and school is near an end, we will focus on fun summer activities such as swimming, nature walks with our magnifying glasses, collecting bugs and butterflies. One of the things the children like with nature is learning the cycle of the butterfly. I show them the pictures of the butterfly sanctuary with the butterfly shedding its cocoon that my oldest son took while being in Korea his first year. He called the pictures "The Miracle of Metamorphosis".
Also, the children enjoy tremendously watching the finches and hummingbirds swooping down to their bird feeders in our backyard and gathering up their food from it. It is such an amazement of wonder outdoors during our summers to find life and color that can still our souls.
Also, please don't forget to use sunblock to protect against the harmful UVA/rays. I recommend Broad Spectrum spf 50 for best protection and also water resistant.
