Ideas for Kids and Families: Make a Sit Spot Outside

Go to your sit spot every week and observe!

Schools are closed, kids are home and parents need a break. Physical distancing is good for keeping us away from Covid-19, but it's also a little boring and most of us are left looking for positive things to fill our days. 

KAXE/KBXE Staff Phenologist John Latimer recommends getting outside! Each day we are checking in with John about cool things to do outdoors - for kids, adults, everyone! It's Phenology at Home.

Today he told us how to make a "sit spot."

At your sit spot you sit still, let yourself become part of nature, see what's around you, and take it all in. A five-gallon bucket is perfect! Fill it with a notepad and pencil, maybe a camera...carry it to a spot...lean against a tree...see what happens!
