OK, who’s with me?! I am ready to let my hair down and have some fun. Too much work and not enough living.

So, let’s remedy that. Let’s get our #playoutdoors on!¬† :-)

Why not…

As always, it doesn’t matter what you do — just unplug and get outside.

There is a whole gorgeous planet out there just waiting for you. Seriously.

Frolic Friday, With a Little Help From My Friends

That One Pink Cloud P2160010

Ahhhhhhh, can you feel it? It’s the weekend, which means it’s time to power down and recharge your play batteries!

Kids and adults alike need to let their hair down, use their outside voices, and PLAY!

This weekend, listen to some of my very smart friends from around the web.

Why not…

As always, it doesn’t matter what you do, just make time to reconnect with nature and feast on FUN!

Now if you will excuse me, I have a pine cone to find…

Frolic Friday #9: Walkabout Edition

beginning of the hike

Today’s Frolic Friday is dedicated to putting your best foot forward! Let’s get out there and explore the nature nearby, or expand our range a bit and see what nature has in store farther away from “the nest.” After a busy week, there is nothing better than stretching your legs and letting some time outdoors restore your body, mind, and spirit — for kids and adults alike. So, leave the MP3 players at home and let’s get going!

Why not…

  • Go on a scent hike with the kids. There are so many things in bloom right now — count the number of different scents you detect in your neighborhood or favorite park;
  • For older kids, have them draw a map of your neighborhood with a walking route marked off in red and lead you or a group of friends on a fun walkabout. If old enough, they can replace the route markings with clues and then your walk becomes a mystery to solve, too; or
  • Visit a state park and go hiking — go a little further afield this weekend. Not one nearby? Any local¬† trail system will do. Visit Rails-to-Trails Conservancy to find a trail near you.

Whether you hike, bike, or stroll, getting out on a trail is a great way to explore nature and take advantage of free community resources. As always, it doesn’t matter WHAT you do, just make some time to play outdoors this weekend. (For additional ideas, check out previous Frolic Friday posts.)

If you need me, I will be out on the trail. I will be the one with the binoculars, who still hasn’t mastered their use with total ease, but loves them nonetheless!
