Based on the hit PBS KIDS show, Nature Cat’s Great Outdoors is the on-the-go toolset that will inspire your child to explore nature – in the backyard, at a local park or even looking out the window. Every day, Nature Cat has a set of new daily adventures that lets kids use tools to record and share their observations in fun, creative ways!

• 100+ adventure prompts given daily to get kids using tools, thinking about nature and recording their observations
• Filter by rain, snow, sun, and indoor to play any time
• Daily Nature Adventures are saved in a special journal so kids can go and revisit what they have explored

• Take photos and selfies with Daisy’s camera
• Record sounds with Hal and his microphone
• Use journal art tools to insert photos, sounds, stickers in addition to drawing, stamping, and painting
• Create an endless amount of journals filled with your own nature adventures

Earn achievement badges for your Nature Explorer sash the more Daily Adventures you complete. Unlock over 100 stickers as Daily Nature Adventures are completed to use in your journal.

Onward and yonward!

This game sometimes starts right up. But then it seems to disintegrate over time. Force quitting, rebooting does not fix. The only way to fix is delete and reinstall. Too bad because it seems pretty cool.
