25 Free, Fun, & Unique Outdoor Activities

I am have to admit, I am getting a little tired of winter. Bundling the kids up every time we leave the house and especially when we want to play outside. It is getting old. This Florida girl isn't use to all the white stuff.

As a motivator for myself, and hopefully for you, I pulled together a few of our favorite ideas for free, fun and unique outdoor activities for families. Most of them can be done in any season. Enjoy!
