Top 5 Things To Do In The Country Side

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

I have been contemplating of bringing my kids to my hometown in Bukidnon to introduce them to country side living. They are practically a city living kids, recreation are energy consuming machines - like television, computer games, playstation, with occassional play in the park. But no activity that involves playing with animals, making their hands dirty, swim in the river. Stuff like that! I miss my life when I was still young.

These are the top five activities in the countryside:
1. Plant a tree. Teach kids about protecting the environment and planting tree with their own hand is a good start.

2.Feed the animals. We have animals like chicken, goat and cow. In Dumaguete, its their chore to feed the chickens every morning and every afternoon. Chickens were overfed though.

3. Take a pick. Pack the baskets and try to harvest with whatever there is to harvest. For instance, vegetables like tomato and other stuff.

4. Explore the area. Let them walk barefoot in the grass, play with stones, and small animals or insects.

5. Picnic. Sit under the trees and bring some food to share. My kids love to picnic, they will surely enjoy their short little getaway.
