Take a Child Outside Week

September 24—September 30 Annually

Take A Child Outside Week is a program designed to help break down obstacles that keep children from discovering the natural world. By arming parents, teachers and other caregivers with resources on outdoor activities, our goal is to help children across the country develop a better understanding and appreciation of the environment in which they live, and a burgeoning enthusiasm for its exploration.

Going outside:

  • connects children to the natural world
  • helps kids focus in school
  • reduces chances of obesity
So take a child outside!

Outdoor kitchen play

I've started calling it the "Pine Needle Kitchen".  The children are really enjoying the new outdoor kitchen/restaurant and Mallory, Ian and I are so happy!
