Explore the Sun Walk


Explore the Sun Walk

[20 Minutes]

Enjoy some fresh air on a sunny day and explore the marvels of sunshine together.

What to do:

  1. On a day when the sun is warm and bright, go out with your child for a sun walk. Talk about how the sun makes him feel.
  2. Bring out a pair of sunglasses. Let him try them on. Ask him, "What do sunglasses do?"
  3. Encourage him to notice where the sun is located in the sky at different times of the day. Talk about how the sun moves.
  4. Invite him to find places where you both can hide from the sun.
  5. Together, look for plants that grow in the sun. Also find plants that seem to like the shade.
  6. Invite your child to find a place to sit in the warm sun. Time him for one minute. At the end of one minute, ask him how he feels.

Let's Talk: Ideas to Explore Together.

  • Is the sun warmer on your bare arm or where clothing covers your body?
  • Can you think of some ways people try to stay cool on a hot day?
