Magnifying nature is a great reason for a simple walk. We love taking walks together as a family. We took lots of them, with my kids joined by their cousins, over the long weekend. Three magnifying glasses for $1 at the Dollar Store distracted the kids from the “walk” and focused all their energies on the natural world around them. Rolie-polie bugs, snails, and varieties of flora and fauna grew in size and texture. My favorite part was watching their increasing awareness of the world around them.
- Don’t spend more than a few dollars on your magnifying glasses – I saw some online for only 10 cents if you buy in bulk. Keep it simple.

FUN post! Magnifying glasses are such a fun way to explore nature -- or anything, for that matter. Kids go crazy for them!
