    We loved this new program last year and are super excited to participate again this year! There is no signup involved; simply view the brag badge activities in your area, complete the activities, and pick up the brag badges at the designated local businesses. It encourages kids to get off their electronic devices and out to explore the world they live in. For each activity they complete, they earn a “brag badge”. Make sure to tag your pictures with #enjoyutah and #weplayunplugged so we can see what kind of fun things you are doing!

This website will give you lots of fun ideas, including activities, games, songs, travel puzzles,tools and templates,printables and free activity books to take with you on your road trip.You can even download the FREE Utah Kids Travel Passport booklet.
