Great activity for day hiking kids: Tall as Me

"The red-leafed tree is taller than, but that prickly
one is shorter!"
Generally, exploring and discovery is enough for kids, but sometimes even they can grow bored with that and become restless. Remember that they naturally have shorter attention spans than adults. Fortunately, there are lots of tried and true activities you can do on the trail that’ll keep kids from getting bored. Among them is Tall as Me.

Have preschoolers find something along the trail that is the same height as them, then something taller, and finally something shorter.

Materials: None needed

3-5 years
