We have all heard about, and hopefully experienced, the health benefits of the great outdoors, but when winter sets in it can be a bit more challenging to make the trek outside. But the effort is well worth it, especially during the busy holiday season, when kid energy and stress levels can run high.
So to help inspire you and your family into the great outdoors, we are sharing activities from Everyone Wins-3rd Edition: Cooperative Games and Activities for All Ages and The Big Book of Nature Activities A Year-round Guide to Outdoor Learning. What better present can we offer than our presence.
