Mom Report: Just Add Nature

by |

The Just Add Nature kits is a great way to get creative and teach your kids a little about the outdoors!

I am all about convenience and finding creative ways to get my son outdoors. I recently tested “Just Add Nature” kits, and they are perfect grab-and-go buckets. These kits have just what you need to teach children the foundations of fishing in a safe way.

The recommended age for these kits are 8+ years. My son is almost 3, so they were a little advanced for him; but, we got creative and were still able to use an item out of each kit. He had a blast at the creek!

The “Rig A Dinger” kit includes:

  • 4 Training Dingers 
  • 4 Plastic Hooks 
  • 4 Barbless #4 Hooks 
  • Wacky Rig Tool 
  • Pliers
  • Bucket

My son and I assembled the “wacky rig” and the step-by-step instructions were very helpful since this was our first try and we did it!

The “Hoppin’ Things” kit includes:

  • 4 Spring Floats 
  • 6 Barbless #4 Hooks 
  • 6 Split Shot 
  • 1 Net
  • Pliers
  • Bucket

My son loved the net in this kit! In fact, we caught a salamander! Can you spot it in the picture?

The “Wiggly Worm” kit includes:

  • 4 Spring Floats 
  • 6 Barbless #4 Hooks 
  • 6 Split Shot 
  • 1 Shovel 
  • Pliers 
  • 2 sided poster
  • Bucket

My son used the shovel to dig up some dirt and rocks. He did not find any worms, but he had fun trying!

These kits are affordable – costing just under $8 and are available at Walmart. Note: these kits do not come with a fishing pole. 

Happy fishing! If you are looking for the perfect fishing spot to take the kids (especially the littler ones who are just beginning) check out our favorite fishing holes here
