Your kid’s world is probably awash in thoughtful classes and programs that encourage everything from reading to gymnastics, so it’s easy to overlook one of the most productive things you can do with them: take a walk. Just heading out the door with a camera and a mission to collect the coolest rocks you can find provides great bonding time and endless opportunities to teach them stuff. There are ways to structure these walks, or you can just wander; either way, remember that time in which you’re the smartest person your kid knows is fleeting. Don’t miss your chance to make up names for trees and birds, which will take them years to unlearn.
