Family Focus: Picnics and Cookouts

Our friends at Nature Deficit Disorder hared some ideas for having food fun outside to mix things up these days. As the weather gets warmer, it’s a great time to take advantage of getting fresh air and a break from being indoors; of course mind all the recommended precautions (wash hands, wear masks, maintain six feet distance from others as much as possible).

Fun and Educational Outdoor Activities for Families

Spending time outdoors builds confidence, inspires creativity, and encourages physical activity. On the other hand, growing up disconnected from nature can negatively affect our health and well-being, an idea known as nature-deficit disorder. So, help your kids develop a relationship with the natural world by finding fun ways to enjoy the outdoors together!
