Take a walk in the park
Now that Spring is here, it's time to get outside and get active. United Way Emerging Leaders encourage you to turn a walk in the park with your child into a fun learning experience at one of their Born Learning Trails.
What’s a Born Learning Trail? It's a set of 10 stations that help you and your child explore the world around us. You can play hopscotch and practice counting. Or identify animals and make animal noises. Or learn letters of the alphabet and list words that start with "a" or "b".
Born Learning Trails are designed to help you interact with your child. Everyday moments can be teachable moments and everyday tasks can be fun ways to help your child develop the skills they need to be ready for school.
Where will you find a Born Learning Trail? United Way Emerging Leaders have installed three trails. One is located at 3M Park in Wausau, another at Machmuller Park in Weston, and the latest at Marathon Elementary School. All three trails have different activities - explore all three this Spring. Happy trails!
