Mark Your Calenders: Full Moon Walk This Weekend

I’ve mentioned these before and you all seem to like the reminders so here’s the latest one: Saturday, June 26th is another Full Moon and just the right time for a “Full Moon Walk.” We have done two of these with our kids so far and they love them!

The idea comes from the book, ” Walk When the Moon Is Full. This is a very old book and actually very hard to find in most libraries. It’s written by a Mother who shares the adventures her and family had each time the moon was full when they’d go on their “Full Moon Walks.”

I’m hoping the weather will be nice enough for all of you to enjoy some family time outside exploring. More than likely, the moon will be just as full Friday night, too, if that night works out better.

Some items to consider for your walk:

*Flashlights – Even though you’ll be in well-lit areas, the kids think these are fun and you never know when you might need one. (My kids have the Handy Manny “Flicker the Flashlight” and they love bringing that with us.)

*Mosquito Repellent – You may want to use some on children that are old enough to wear it.

*Small snacks and water

*Small Blanket and/or spare jackets – You never know when a chill might creep up in the weather. Also, you might find a nice spot to just sit and stare at the moon and stars with the kids.

*Bag(s) for carrying found treasures

*Camera – Take lots of pictures for a memory book of each walk

Disclaimer: Use your best judgment and all safety requirements when walking outside. Only walk in safe neighborhoods, wear clothing that can be visible to others and even though you’ll be exploring, try to stay in well-lit areas.
