Now typically, I beat the drum about getting outside on Fridays, but I am hoping that with the combo of what can only be called The World’s Longest Winter and the addition of another hour of daylight thanks to daylight savings time, I don’t really need to.
Hopefully, you and the children in your world will just rush right outside and see what Mother Nature has cookin‘. (And, for a little inspiration in that department, check out these gorgeous pictures from my friend Robin and her boys’ recent #playoutdoors adventure!)
But, just in case, why not…
- Get diggin! Head to the closest sandbox, start some flower boxes, or even just dig a hole in the backyard and play archeologist. Bury a few trinkets and see where your imagination leads you. Just get dirty and have fun!
- Go follow a stream! Check out this fun idea from my friend Mel at Your Wild Child.
- See what spring programs your local nature center has to offer. Something on spring peepers or birds & buds?! Most areas have free or low-cost programming going on. Check out Nature Find to find an event near you!
As always, it doesn’t matter what you do — just get out there and have some fun. Fill those shiny new 60 minutes of daylight with wonder and magic!
