Let's Move Outside
Let's Move Outside, administered by the Department of Interior, was created to get kids and families to take advantage of America's great outdoors. Kids need at least 60 minutes of active and vigorous play each day to stay healthy, and one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to meet this goal is by playing outside.Click here to learn more about the Let's Move Outside campaign.
