It’s time for the last Outdoor Play Party of 2013! Wow. The year is almost behind us. We have been busy, busy, busy getting ready for the holidays. Part of our holiday annual traditions involves heading to a small pioneer village in our hometown. We wander down a wooded trail to a small village of homes dating from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s. I actually used to work as a summer student at this village while I attended University. I love taking my kids back in time. A large portion of the time is spent outdoors exploring. In pioneer times “outdoor play” was not a parenting choice – it was the only choice. Nowadays our homes are filled with so many technological distractions, it is important to remember that nature is so much more entertaining and fun.
Not only is it almost Christmas, but it is the beginning of Winter. The girls have already been outside building snow forts. We cannot wait to get back into our weekend outdoor skating habit. I took a look around the last Outdoor Play Party and found a couple of fun wintery and Christmasy post to share.
