SO NOW THAT THE WEATHER IS WARMING UP AND THE KIDS ARE ABLE TO GET INSIDE MORE, IT IS NICE TO GET SOME CREATIVE EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES TO KEEP THEM BUSY. RAY HERNANDEZ FROM LAKE SHORE LEARNING IS HERE LIVE ON THE WCCO ROOFTOP THIS MID-MORNING. RAY, THANKS SO MUCH FOR COMING
IN. IT’S SO NICE TO HAVE YOU HERE. THANKS. I HAVE KIDS THAT ARE 10 AND 8 AND THIS IS THE TIME OF THE YEAR THAT ALL PARENTS ARE TELLING KIDS TO PUT DOWN THEIR iPADS AND GET OUTSIDE. SOMETIMES YOU NEED A FEW IDEAS TO HELP MAYBE GET THE PLAY GOING, RIGHT?
RIGHT. SPRINGTIME IS OUR FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT IDEAS TO GET
OUT THERE. WHETHER YOU HAVE A CRAFTER OR A NATURE LOVER AND A LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS TO SHOW YOU. GREAT. LET’S START WITH THE NATURE LOVER. YES, WE’VE GOT THE BUTTERFLY NURSERY. FOR ALL THE FUTURISTIC PEOPLE OUT THERE, WHY NOT INSPIRE THEM BY LETTING THEM SEAT LIFE CYCLE OF THE BUTTERFLY. THEY COULD START BY WATCHING THE TINY CATERPILLARS GROW INTO BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLIES. YOU CAN BUY THE
CATERPILLARS? YOU CAN BUY THEM AT THE STORE AND GET THE NURSERY AND THEY COULD OBSERVE THEM. AT THE END, THEY COULD WATCH THEM GO OUT INTO THE WILD. YES. JUST GO OUT FOR A NATURE WALK AND COLLECT THINGS. BRING IT BACK HOME. JUST HAVE THE KIDS OBSERVE
THEM. AND THEY HAVE A BAG TO PUT IT IN. AND THEY CAN WORK ON SKILLS LIKE OBSERVATION AND JUST HAVE A FUN TIME. KIDS LOVE DOING THIS. THAT THERE IS NO NATURE. BUT THAT IS NOT TRUE. EVEN JUST WALKING DOWN THE REGULAR URBAN BLOCK THAT YOU WILL FIND, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS.
