The Great Outdoors Sticker Challenge
It’s summer (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least), so you should be outside in the fresh air! But before you go, we want you to sticker up one of our Great Outdoors images to let us know that you’re heading out for some fun in the sun. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
