Let's Play Outside

Danielle from The Mommy and Me Book Club has issued a challenge for parents and caregivers of young children.  The challenge is explained here.  And she has started a new blog to go along with this challenge. The challenge is pretty simple--take your children outside to play everyday during the month of April.  If you accept the challenge go here and become a follower, then comment that you accept the challenge and share your favorite place to play outside as a child.  At the end of April, you'll need to post again to state if you met the challenge.  She will be giving away an Amazon Gift Card at that time.

Throughout the month we will share ideas including books and blogs about the benefits of outdoor play. Each week she will host a link up to share pictures and blog posts about your outdoor play that previous week.  These will have a theme and will be on Sundays.  They are not required, but I think they will be super fun!  I get some of my best ideas from the inspiration of others.

If you take your children outside for at least 30 minutes daily in April, they will have spent at least 900 minutes outside.  Woo Hoo!
