The outdoors is a giant playground where kids can explore, pretend, learn, get exercise, and of course have fun. It’s important for them to spend as much time as they can there. These are the stories to inspire you and guide you towards a lifetime of outside fun with your little ones.

Getting kids outside every day

Due to the challenges of the pandemic, kids are spending a lot more time online and too little time outside. To provide fun and easy ways for kids to go from screen time to green time, we’ve forged a new partnership with the National Wildlife Federation. The program, called “The Green Hour,” includes seasonal activities designed to encourage kids to spend more time outdoors. We will be sharing these activities every week, so stay tuned!
