Here we go. Every year I put together a gift guide for outdoor-loving kids. As my girls grow…they just don’t seem to want to stop growing…I am realizing that “outdoor play” for tweens is different than for younger kids. Generally speaking, young kids love being outside. Little ones will spend hours running around outside. Well, with tweens it is a little more challenging. As kids grow up they are drawn to indoor activities; computers, television and general mopping around (I think that’s what you would call it). So, how do we encourage our pre-teens to get outside and play? We offer appealing activities, we find creative ways to engage them outdoors and in some cases, we give them a push out the door…literally. Here is our best of the best outdoor gift guide for tweens that will have your pre-teen spending more time outdoors.
