Ideas for Kids and Families: Make a Sit Spot Outside
Schools are closed, kids are home and parents need a break. Physical distancing is good for keeping us away from Covid-19, but it's also a little boring and most of us are left looking for positive things to fill our days.
KAXE/KBXE Staff Phenologist John Latimer recommends getting outside! Each day we are checking in with John about cool things to do outdoors - for kids, adults, everyone! It's Phenology at Home.
