Helping Kids LOVE the Outdoors — 6 Comments

  1. Great ideas to get kids to love the outdoors. I believe it is so healthy for the physically & mentally to be outside and learn to love nature. There is a world of fantasy and exploring where they can learn so much more than being inside. Congratulations on being featured on #GoingGreenLinky party. Have a healthy, happy & blessed week.

    • Thanks for stopping by! Our kids are used to being wild and free outside and it’s quite a blessing to them! They have hours of imaginative play out there with their forts and adventures.

  2. This is a brilliant list and pretty much what I did when my boys were younger. Now their computers are more of a draw but I can still limit how much tome they are on them and they also do a lot of sport. So today they are both out all day at an athletics event and a rugby tournament!

    Thank you for linking up with the #GoingGreenLinky. The next one opens on Mon May 1st and I hope you can join up again 💚💚

    • It didn’t occur to me that way at first either. But so often our kids’ friends would come by and be overwhelmed by the idea of “just go outside and play” that I realized outdoor fun has become an “event” for a lot of folks. Not us, thankfully, but a lot of parents ask me how I get them to go out without complaining all the time. I think you have to nurture that imaginative play mentality.

  3. Fab ideas! We love to get outdoors as much as possible too. And I have a little designated garden patch for the boys, so they can plant and watch their flowers grow 🙂

    Thanks so much for joining in with #MMBC. Hope to see you Monday x
