A laptop with digital microscope can be a good way for children to examine leaves, flowers, insects etc. that they might find outdoors.

Sound can be explored and enjoyed by taking tape recorders, CD players and sound recording devices outdoors. Voice changers can be lots of fun and less likely to disturb others if used outside.
