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.

With nature in full bloom and seemingly infinite beautiful days ahead, we’re excited to start spending our days outdoors soaking up the sun. From family outings at the beach spent creating kingdoms of dribble castles, to floating origami paper boats downstream, we love the summertime.
