Recently my wife and I were talking about activities we could do with our children to keep them active and engaged during the hot summer months in southern Arizona. Let’s be honest, when it is 110 degrees outside, indoor activities are the only solution.
We thought the idea of rock art would be fun. So we gathered up a few medium sized stones from the back yard and are in the process of painting them. Once they are all painted and ready for their public display we will go to different locations and place the rocks for others to find.
If you’re not a desert dweller, like me, then this might be a good activity for when it is cold outside? Whatever the case, take the time to teach your children the importance of being kind to others through random acts of kindness like this. Then take them out of public lands to distribute the rocks and teach them the importance of the federal public lands to their future as citizens and outdoor enthusiasts.
Thank you for reading!
