Sometimes all you need to do is open the door and head out. Your kids will find inspiration to run, hop, spin and giggle just by being outside.
But often enough it takes a little extra planning.
It may be because you’re extracting your kids from a tv show . . .
It may be because it’s a little chilly or the bugs are out . . .
Maybe your kids are just feeling a little low-key – or you are – and you need something to put some energy into your day and get you moving . . .
In any case, getting outdoors and moving may take more than just opening the door.
Here is where we list fun outdoor games and activities so you can pick and choose. And you can also refine your favorites as you go on. (You’ll see there will be quite a bit here on family bike rides and kids hiking tips!)
If you don’t have a backyard, getting off and running can be even more of a challenge. So you want to have all your stuff together. I remember when we lived in Brooklyn, how much we looked forward to escaping to the park. And how much packing and planning it took!
So look around, put these ideas into action . . . and share your ideas as well. Just contact us to send in some ideas or comment in the space provided!
