NWF and Where The Wild Things Are

Where the Wild Things Are PosterNWF has always been about “wild things,” so our latest partnership is especially exciting!

The National Wildlife Federation has teamed with the upcoming feature film Where the Wild Things Are, to launch Be Out There™, a national campaign to get families and kids to spend daily time outdoors for their health, happiness and well-being.

Directed by Spike Jonze and based on Maurice Sendak’s classic book, Where the Wild Things Are is an adventure for every generation, the story of a sensitive and rambunctious young boy who feels misunderstood at home and escapes to the island of the Wild Things.

As an education partner for the film, National Wildlife Federation shows kids how they can escape into nature and learn about the wild things wherever they live — with activity guides for kids, parents and teachers.

Inside the kid’s activity guide, children can:

  • Make their own “Wild Things” Mobile
  • Play “Wild Things Bingo”
  • Make a crown and scepter — to rule your own island!
  • And much more!

Inside the guide for educators and parents, you’ll find:

  • Ideas for planning your own Wild Rumpus Day
  • Activities that teach children about the wild things that live right in the neighborhood!
  • And much more!

Check out the movie, in theaters Oct. 16!
