It’s officially spring everywhere and it actually feels like it here in Denver. Which makes it much more fun to help PBS KIDS with their “Explore the Outdoors” program this month! While you’ll see nature themed shows on your TV and online, the real point is to get OUTSIDE. Spring is a great time to learn about composting and plan your garden for the summer (plus maybe get a head start on those dandelions?). We find that our last frost is around Mother’s Day here in Denver, so we generally use the month of April to prep in the yard… but what I love MOST is just seeing people back out and about in the neighborhood and the parks with the dogs and the kids. It’s like everyone is waking up again, not just the trees and plants.
“Explore the Outdoors” will include new special episodes starting April 20th from Wild Kratts (who have an all new app too!) and Dinosaur Train specifically, but you will notice outdoor-themed episodes everywhere you look on PBS KIDS.
Also! Join us April 15th at 12 PM mountain (2 PM Eastern) for a Twitter chat party to celebrate Earth Day and all the fun that can be had outdoors in the springtime.
