Simple Outdoor Adventures for Boys {Day 6}: Catch and Release An Animal

Catch A “Wild” Animal to Observe…


The best pets are the ones you only have to keep for an hour or two!  ;)  And the chase is over half of the fun! We’ve had several temporary pets – a turtle, frog, lizard, crabs, and even a baby bunny rabbit.  An up close observation enables you to learn so much more than just reading about an animal.

And of course parting is such “sweet” sorrow when you release the animal back to its natural environment!

  Helpful Tips/Resources:

* Be sure to know the animals in your region for your own safety.  Never try to capture an animal you haven’t identified.
