Share Summertime Adventures With “Flat Kratts”

Going on a summer adventure? PBS KIDS can share it with us and their favorite “Wild Kratts” characters! Whether you’re traveling somewhere new, sightseeing in the neighborhood or exploring the outdoors, we want to see how you’re learning and having fun this summer!

Through August, we’re proud highlight exciting adventures on AETN’s local and PBS national programming, and we can’t wait to share them with you! So, whether you’re watching with us or doing a little adventuring of your own, we invite you to share photos and videos from your summer adventures with us, tagged with #SummerAdventurePBS.

Since the “Wild Kratts” are always ready for adventure, it just makes sense to take them along! You can download the “Flat Kratts” printable on the AETN KIDS page and take them with you wherever you go. We’ll be sure to share some of our adventures around the state, too!

You’ll also want to stay tuned for a special “Wild Kratts” adventure this month. On Monday, July 24, follow the Kratt brothers on a rollicking, “What if?” adventure in a new, one-hour special: “Wild Kratts Alaska: A Hero’s Journey.” The excitement begins when one of Aviva’s breakthrough inventions falls overboard while creature adventuring in Alaska. The crazy mishap jumpstarts a wild chase fraught with obstacles and amazing creature connections at every bend!

The Alaskan creature fun won’t end in the morning (or afternoon) with “Wild Kratts,” though! Chris Kratt and Martin Kratt will be broadcasting live over three nights as part of the “Wild Alaska Live” series. In it, they’re turning the cameras on a must-see natural spectacle as thousands of the world’s wildest animals gather to take part in Alaska’s amazing summer feast.

Other amazing nature and cultural adventures will also be airing over the summer. Be sure to join us for these fascinating programs, too!
