Simple Outdoor Adventures for Boys {Day 4}: Wading a Creek

Day 4 Creek Wading Simple Outdoor Adventures for Boys

Going Creek Stomping…


  • Old Clothes
  • Sandals/Rain Boots (optional)
  • Towel
  • Change of Clothes

It’s nearly impossible to take a boy to a creek and keep him dry, so why not go with it.  Creek beds are great for exploring rocks, tadpoles, fish, fossils, etc. So take a towel and a change of clothes, and you’ll be all set for a little creek stomping.

It’s simple.  It’s wet.  It’s the stuff little boys are made for!


  Helpful Tips/Resources:

 * You might want to take along a net and/or a small container to observe any creatures you may find.

    When I was growing up, my family camped (and waded) along the Big Elk River in Missouri. My favorite part was catching crawdads! Do you have them where you live?

    I loved to catch crawdads when I was little, too! Although I did get pinched more than a few times…

      We’ve found a few crawdads at the creek…I forget, where did you grow up, Crystal? In the Pacific NW?

      1. Crystal says:

        Yep, in a little town south of Eugene, Oregon. I’m pretty sure I spent more time outside than in until I was a teenager.

          I hope our boys say the same someday! =)

      Absolutely! So glad we “met” yesterday!

  4. Hi, there-
    Just found your blog via the Nester, so excited to see your 31 days topic. I have 3 boys and we struggle for ways to keep them entertained outside. I can’t wait to read more. Our boys love the water, although mainly the ocean and the lakes. We need to introduce them to creek wading.

      So glad you found us and hope you’ll join us for more Outdoor Adventures!

    I think this is what we will do next! Before it gets too cold next week 🙂

      Our weather is taking a cold plunge, and I just don’t know how we will make it through a season of staying DRY! Enjoy!
