Explore the Outdoors

Explore the Outdoors image

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.

Explore with PBS KIDS

From March 31 – April 25, PBS KIDS is 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.

This week, we’re challenging you to get outside and get active.  Fresh air and nature can be a great inspiration for outdoor play, a nature walk, or a family trip to the park.  Get inspired with these activities, tips and ideas from PBS KIDS and PBS Parents.  Next week, April 21 – 25, we’ll have tips, ideas and activities to inspire your family to get involved.
