    Another trick to get kids outside is to KILL your TV...Playstation etc. Listen kiddies...here are your options...you can stay inside and do your homework...or we can all go outside for a hike or on a nature adventure. Given that option who would sit inside?

    It's really sad anymore with all the video games people buy their children. My kids always wanted to be outside to play.
