Getting outside is often easier if you make it about something bigger than yourself and your family. Join a Facebook group or a challenge for inspiration to get outdoors. Our favorite is the 1,000 Hour Outdoor Challenge. It’s completely free, and the Facebook group is inspiring. The challenge is simple: spend 1,000 hours outside with your family over the course of one year. The site offers free visual trackers for recording your hours. The FB group has posts from people all over the world that share their adventures, tips, and ideas for keeping kids (and adults!) entertained outside. Another great resource is Tales of a Mountain Mama’s Outdoor Family Challenge. Sign up for free at her website and receive daily emails with ideas to get your kids outside.
