Remember how great summers were when you were a kid?
I remember spending hours outside using my imagination to take myself on adventures around the world, on the ocean, and in the sky. Some days it was all about getting dirty or wet or sweaty or sun-kissed! All in all, it was a wonderful time…and somedays I just want to go back! 🙂
Now, it’s what I want for my kids! I want them to get on their hands and knees and discover the world they live in. I want them to learn to play together, to grow together, to get dirty together, and to go on wonderful adventures together.
Sometimes I worry that in today’s world it’s harder for kids to let go of things that entertain them (i.e. the tv, ipad, video games, etc…) and move to where they learn to entertain themselves with the things around them. As a parent, I definitely think it’s one of our responsibilities to help them with that difficult transition, if they need it. Being well-rounded children will help them be well-rounded adults.
In an effort to help kids get out of the house and actually be kids, I’ve gathered some of my favorite ways to work with them and help push them to grow, learn, discover, run, play, fly, and squeal with life’s little joys!
