Take a Child Outdoors is Sposored in part by

Alabama State Parks

Special thanks to studiomuku for the creation of the Take A Child Outdoors logo.

What to do

Go for a walk in the woods. Build a sand castle. Plant a garden. The possibilities outdoors are almost endless. Children are born explorers and can find wonder anywhere in nature if given the chance. Here are links to a few possible activities to begin the process of discovery. Be sure to pack plenty of water and sunscreen!
