Looking for fun, inexpensive outdoor activities?

WQPT PBS' Mr. Scott encourages children to ask questions, try different ways of using materials, and explore the world around them. Mr. Scott shares inexpensive (or free) ways to interact with children and help them discover the wonders surrounding them. Whether it be a new way to look at trees or a fun new way to spell their names—it's fun to explore right outside your home. In addition, Mr. Scott videos give you simple instructions to help kids have fun! Explore more
