The time together makes it magical.

The possibilities are endless for the kinds of adventures you can have with your kids going out into the world together.

Learning opportunities are everywhere for introducing or reinforcing colors, numbers and counting, or reading and letters. When you turn off the screens and have real-life experiences you also make memories, connect with the people and places in your community, and learn more about the world and your place in it. Those are some pretty spectacular bonus lessons.
