Outdoor activities with kids can be done anytime, anywhere.......

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?


The good news is, 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.

That's the beauty of this roundup - there's a mix of indoor and outdoor projects.

You can choose the one that fits for any given day (including the weather!), theme, or interest.

Let's get started!
