We all know getting kids in the backyard to play is important, but it isn’t happening. According to Sanford Health, “on average, American children spend four to seven minutes a day in unstructured outdoor play compared to seven or more hours in front of a screen.”
Our friends at OFF!® Repellents wanted to help tackle this problem. So, they developed The Never Starting Tales, a collection of free, full-color, digital storybooks that hilariously imagine what would have happened if well-known fairy-tale characters had never left their homes.
We loved these stories so much we created lessons and activity sheets to go with them. Start by sharing The Never Starting Tales with kids to get them thinking about why more adventures start outside. Then, continue the fun with these free resources. Each tale has activity sheets that reinforce how important it is for kids and their families to play in their backyards.
Here’s what you will receive:
- Lessons showing how to incorporate fairy tales into cool topics like ELA and STEAM
- Brainstorming and activities to get kids and their families learning in their backyards.
Kids will see how learning in your own backyard can be an adventure. Just click the buttons below to get your free lessons and activities.
