I remember from your interview your fondness of the tree ferns; thanks for sharing the photos.
Based on what you mention above, I am thankful yet again for my son's school, as they have no computers or similar and no video assignments. He learns from me as we work together occasionally on my computer. Being familiar with electronics is indeed essential, and I have no doubt that my son will learn it as well as anyone else, even though it is not used in school. Being taught to think enables learning almost any skill, as I have taught myself much about computers and the various programs I use on it. He often asks to color graphs with me.
The Health & Safety sounds a bit overdone, as there are many experiences to be had on a rainy day. I have no desire to be locked up in a padded cell with a straight jacket to ensure I do not injure myself!
Thanks for sharing your experiences, and I hope others reading this article will remember to at least occasionally check what their children will be doing.
I will hope for rainy skies and grey overcast days for you!
Look and listen for the welfare of the whole people and have always in view not only the present but also the coming generations, even those whose faces are yet beneath the surface of the ground -- the unborn of the future Nation. The Constitution of the Iroquois Nations.

Family Fun - Wireless & Unplugged

I created this cubit to share ways of motivating families, especially children, to get outside, and activities to do once everyone is outside. Being outdoors is a wonderfully fun and healthy activity. Let's share indoor unplugged activities, as well.
