One thing we know for sure is that play outside this winter, no matter the climate where you live, will be essential to kids' health and wellness.

The outdoors are the safest place for kids to socialize and play, and we know that nature offers the richest learning environment around.

Here's how kids and parents from climates across the country gear up for lots of wonderful outdoor play.
