This rich collection of hands-on outdoor ideas are intended for children and youth, ages 3-18 years old. The activities support learning across the curriculum, promote healthy lifestyles, and encourage play and exploration during children’s free time, before, during and after school. Many of the activities help kids understand the places they live, build life-long skills, and collaborate to improve their schoolyard's ecosystems.
