Would your child rather spend the day in front of the TV or in the great outdoors?
Research shows that kids who regularly play outdoors tend to play more imaginatively, have lower stress levels, and have a greater respect for themselves, for others, and for the environment.
That's why Where the Other You Lives, a new PSA campaign, is aiming to get kids-specifically tweens-off the couch and into nature.
Use the Web site to find forests and parks near you, as well as discover games and activity suggestions (leaf rubs, finding animal tracks, etc.) to do with your tweens.
What do you and your tween do outside?
