The best outdoor gear for kids is a must for camping, hiking, and nature!

Dream Big, Be Kind, Be A Kid, and get outside this weekend with the best outdoor gear for kids! Going hiking, camping, birding, nature wondering – anything outdoors? You may very well need to get this for your kids!

Get your kids off the screen and outside!! It’s so important for their health, mind, and body. I know. I have an 11-year-old! Electronics have certainly played a number in our family. We don’t want to take electronics away from him, so we present other fun things and activities. And, yes, I do have to pull him away from his phone or Minecraft games to go outside, and yes, sometimes it’s a struggle. But nine times out of ten, he gets over it real quick.

THiNK OUTSiDE is a monthly subscription box for kids 7+ with outdoor gear and resources to learn and grow.
