With spring in full swing, kids should spend time outside as much as they can to enjoy nature and the warm weather. Unfortunately in these technological ages children are far more interested in staying home in front of the TV, gaming console or a computer rather than being outside. It’s up to you to show them that spending time in nature is not only healthier but it’s also a lot more fun. Create wonderful DIY projects and give your kids endless hours of entertainment in the warm embrace of nature. We’ve rounded up some fun outdoor activities to chase the boredom away and keep your kids from turning into couch potatoes.
