The weather is finally warming up, and that makes it a great time to get outside and explore. Whether it’s visiting your local zoo, spending the day at the beach, or having a picnic in your backyard, engaging in outdoor exploration is a great way for kids to stay active and healthy, learn about nature and develop important math and science skills.
From March 31 – April 25, PBS KIDS will be celebrating the great outdoors with tips and ideas for your family, and games, video and apps from PBS KIDS to inspire your kids. Whether you’re indoors or out, you and your children can share some outdoor wonder this spring with PBS KIDS.
Check back in during Earth Month for tips and ideas to get you out and exploring. In the meantime, you can get ready for the great outdoors with some of these activities from PBS KIDS.
