Fun activity for hiking kids: Imaginescape

"It's the evil Red Knight, who demands a toll for going
through the pass."
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 Imaginescape.

As walking along the trail, have children try to see animals, objects or faces in the boulders, trees or hills around you. The activity is like seeing pictures in clouds but transferred to the landscape.

Materials: None needed

Ages: 4 and up
