Get Your Kids To Play Outside

At a time when children are spending more time than ever indoors, it is important to take a step outside every now and again. Forests are places where you can grow family bonds, away from all the distractions of the modern world.

Whether it's just on your lawn or deep within the woodlands, the American Forest Foundation's website has activities designed to help children learn how to appreciate the natural world around them. Chances are, you’ll also have fun, watching your child’s face light up with wonderment and curiosity.
