Sure, we talk about hiking, visiting parks and forests, etc. but where do you start and which resources can you rely on? Here are a few, recommended by Lets Move!, that we at GeoPalz just love!
National Wildlife Federation
Whether you live in a mountain town like Golden, Colorado….
Or, near a big city like Chicago, Illinois… You’ll find a treasure trove of activities!
Discover the Forest
Once you make it outside, it can be tricky to know how to fill your childrens’ time. Especially if they’ve become accustomed to receiving entertainment (TV, video games, etc) rather than creating it. Check out Discover the Forest - What To Do for fantastic suggestions. Also, trust that once your kids mentally transition to outdoor time and enjoy that beautiful fresh air their imaginations will run wild!
Do you have little ones that just can’t get enough of the slide or jungle gym? Find the coolest and most innovative playgrounds through Kaboom!
Still having trouble finding a playground in your area? Kaboom not only maps them, they build ‘em! Learn how Kaboom can support you and your community in constructing the playground your children deserve.
To offer further encouragement of physical activity, have your kids join the GeoPalz in tracking their steps and moving toward a healthier life!
