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.

Not even the coldest time of the year can stop us from our outdoor activities! Take advantage of below freezing temperatures to create ice mobiles and explore how water can change states. Even if you aren’t able to experience such extremes, young children can still embrace the change in seasons through outdoor activities like celebrating winter solstice.. Our play-based learning activities foster connections with the environment and an understanding of the science around us.
