Go to a nearby “wild” space with a few of your child’s friends and help the kids create a “secret hideout” solely from the trees, rocks, branches, etc. Show the kids how they can not only use the hideout for club meetings, but by using the flora and fauna from the area to disguise themselves, they’ve created a “blind” from which they can see the way animals and birds act and interact when they don’t think any humans are watching.

Extra Credit: Grab a pair of binoculars and a camera phone and get closer to the action as a wildlife photographer (just put the lens of the camera phone over one of the “eyes” of the binoculars.
