Outdoor activities with kids can be done anytime, anywhere. There's always lots to explore and discover when there are no expectations or limitations. You can enjoy nature crafts in all seasons and locations.

No matter what the weather is! 

  • Exploring in rain, sun, wind or snow means a unique opportunity every day, every season, with new experiences and new discoveries.

No matter what play space is available!

  • You don't need a well-equipped playground or groomed hiking trails. Outdoor walks can be enjoyed in many different ways. Look at the sky - can you see cloud shapes? Look at the ground - are you walking on sand or gravel? Look for habitats - are there trees where birds might build nests?

Nature activities using twigs

Nature activities can be provided indoors or outdoors. When you really are limited by weather, outdoor space, or other factors, simply take a bit of nature inside for kids to explore hands-on.

We've included a mix of indoor and outdoor projects to accommodate different situations and preferences. You can choose the one that fits for any given day (including the weather!), theme, or interest.

Let's get started!
