I just wrote an ariticle about creating an Adventure Pack for your kids to use while hiking or other outdoor activities.  The pack makes it fun for your little ones because they get to carry something too, and it provides some extra tools for exploring nature a little more in depth. 

When I first had this idea, I hopped online to purchase one.  To my dismay, I wasn't able to find one to purchase that was age appropriate for my daughter.  I also couldn't find any ideas of what to include in one for a 4 year old.  So I improvised and created my own! 

Do your kids have an Adventure Pack?  What would you put in your child's pack?
