If you can find the stars of Orion then you can use the shape to find other interesting stuff in the sky. For example, you can hop from the three Belt stars to a few other things.
Aldebaran is an old orange giant star about 65 light years away. It's the kind of bloated star that our Sun will evolve into when the nuclear fuel runs out in five or six billion years time.
Although Aldebaran seems to be embedded in the faint scattering of stars around it - this is an illusion. The Hyades star cluster is more than twice as distant as Aldebaran. This means we are closer to Aldebaran than it is to the stars that seem to be next to it in the sky!
Binoculars give a great view of Aldebaran and the Hyades cluster.
