Find Activities

Available year-round, our outdoor activities for young children let them experience play-based learning during all seasons. Tinkergarten’s outdoor activities integrate play-based learning with the outdoors, no matter what time of the year. Rain or shine, we guarantee you’ll be able to find fun and easy activities to take advantage of the nature around us.

What better way to spend the fall season than outdoors amongst the turning leaves and crisp air? Our fall outdoor activities take advantage of the elements of nature freely available this time of year. From getting down and dirty in the mud to gathering crispy fall foliage to make magic carpets, young children can explore their creativity while interacting with nature during one of the most colorful times of the year.
