Favorite Outside Activities

I wanted to give you a head's up! I plan on posting a link-up on Monday, March 28th to share ideas on outside play with our kiddos.  We will do this throughout the month of April, each time with a different theme.  The first one, however, will be for Lists of Fun Outdoor Play Ideas.  So if you have your own blog and would like to share your family's favorite outdoor activities, write a blog post and share it with all of us on Monday! Or maybe you already have a great list you have shared previously on your blog.  That is wonderful, too! It will be a great resource to all of us as we seek for fun new ways to enjoy the great outdoors with our loved ones! (Others coming up will include research on benefits of outdoor play, nature play, rainy day fun, and books about nature to share with our little ones).


  1. Nature hikes, geocaching/letter boxing, swimming/water fun, bike riding/walks, sports, gardening, art projects (chalk, finger painting, etc.), picnics, imagination games (ninjas, indians, explorers, pokemon, house, camping, etc. etc.), camping, kite flying, tree & rock climbing, and a million more!

  2. Oh, I forgot one of our favorite things to do (besides hide and seek in the dark), star gazing! We LOVE to pull out our telescope!

  3. Yeah!! I'm going to do this challenge! this is a great idea. Did you know that the General Surgeon said the #1 killer in North America last year was INACTIVITY? Wow!! inactivity leads to several health problems. That lead to death. Lets get everyone outside playing!!
