we need our outside playtime

goal for the week:  lots of outside play time.

Last week was a typical BC week in January.  Rain, rain and more rain.


Way too many inside recess days for anyone's well being.


This week the weather is co-operating - and we are going outside.  


When we are outside,

 we can use our big muscles, 





use our imaginations,

would you like a cupcake?

my horse's name is Daisy

dig, build and create



see the world from a new perspective,

             

or find a quiet spot to sit with friends.



Being outside is good for the body, mind and soul.

  2. Your outdoor space looks wonderful. I want some logs and stumps added to our playground for imaginative play and climbing. We've been suffering from too many indoor days here too!

    1. We are very fortunate to have a forest with logs and stumps that the kids can play on/with. Hope your weather allows the kids outside soon.

  7. How great to see the kids climbing and swinging and digging. The weather was more pleasant here too this week so we got outside some. There was a lot of mud from the melting snow, but that only made it more fun in my daughter's eyes!

  8. We like mud too. I tell the kids' parents that kids wash and so do their clothes. Most are delighted when their kids come home muddy and happy.
