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.

Spring has sprung, and so has the number of possibilities for outdoor play! Kids can observe the changing seasons as the snow begins to melt and temperatures rise. Our play-based learning gives children a hands on experience with green spaces and hunting for nature’s treasures.
