To encourage outdoor exploration and adventure …

Child Swinging
Amazon

For the nature-loving kid, consider putting together a kit with these Cometron binoculars, a compass, a magnifying glass, and a journal.

And something to help a kid be a scientist wherever he or she goes — an LED pocket telescope!

All kids love to swing from trees, right? Here’s the top-rated Blue Disk Swing Monkey.  And here’s a hanging kit to go with it.

Do you know what badminton without the net is called? Speedminton!

And what kid wouldn’t want to try a slackline like this one from Macaco?
