I have noticed a new phenomenon happening in my house. Anything one child wants to do – the other child does not want to do. It’s awesome, not. So, when I suggested we go outside for a walk the other day, I was not surprised when one daughter said “great!” and my other daughter said “No way!” Well, this has new phenomenon has made me come up with creative ways to get them to come to an agreement. When it came to our walk, I suggested we draw up a map of where we were going to go…not a regular map, a magical map. Our plan was to walk through our local ravine I wanted my daughters wanted to draw a map of a magical land inside the ravine.
Creating maps is one easy way to get kids excited about exploring the outdoors. Speaking of getting outside, it is time for the Outdoor Play Party! Our last Outdoor Play Party was filled with fun fall activities from around the world. Here are a few I enjoyed…
