For more Dinosaur Train fun, trail blaze with the Nature Trackers Club! An outside walk or hike is a great way to explore nature. It is amazing how many different plants, animals, and habitats you and your child can see along the way. To add your child’s creative touch to the walk, try trail blazing. That is when you use different markings and symbols to create a trail. These markings help people know where to turn and what to expect on your trail. Download the new Nature Trackers Club July Challenge from Dinosaur Train to begin trail blazing in your neighborhood. You’ll find some simple trail markers to get you started and then you can get creative and make your own!
Is it too hot for outside fun? Try trail blazing in your home. Check out preveious Nature Tracker Club Challenges to keep your family exploring nature and building vocabulary this summer.
