I’m sure many of you are looking for fun activities, games, and fun things to do this summer with the kids. I know that, like me, many of you are also busy with many other responsibilities between work, running businesses, and life in general. With all that goes on in an average week, sometimes it’s hard to get outside with the kids and let them enjoy the outdoors. And yet, outside play is such an important aspect of childhood!
One of our favorite ways to play outside is to head to a local park with a soccer ball and kite. Baby boy and baby girl love to kick the ball around in an open field and we enjoy flying kites with them.
If you need ideas for games and activities you can do outside, you should definitely check out the Let’s Play site, where I’ve been a contributor and have participated as a Let’s Play Ambassador for over a year. Other ambassadors and myself provide play ideas and our stories on raising active kids. You can also take the Let’s Play Pledge on Facebook to commit to an extra 60 minutes of play each week.
