Featured in our #OutdoorsAll4 challenge, ‘Time Out for Tea’, add a warm tea break into a walk or hike. The ritual helps to create a moment of quiet and warmth that you can share alongside the active exploration.
Invitation: Making Sense
We all get more information when we use more senses. There is more benefit to using multiple senses at once than simply getting more information. Each sensory system utilizes different parts of the body and a different set of parts of the brain. So, to put it simply, kids harness more brain power when they use more than one sensory system at once. With the addition of warm tea into a hike on chilly day, we're activating our sense of touch, taste and temperature—a huge sensory system win! Additionally, introducing something new and unique into an activity you do somewhat regularly heightens the investment and excitement for everyone involved.
