Kids Need to Play Outside

Getting outside every single day is a priority here in our Garden State Homeschool.

Princess feels a need for fresh air every day, so there is no need to convince her.
Bella is easily lured with garden chores... Have you ever seen a child so happy to be asked to weed?
Peanut and Jules need a bit more convincing to leave the armoire filled with dress up clothes..

I help make them more comfortable by setting up a reading and snack space.
There is a vinyl tablecloth (vinyl side on the grass) under the blanket so we stay dry.
Stacks of books, and pillows, tray of snacks.We also have lots of outside toys..swing set, play houses,tunnelssee saw, balls, sandbox, and bikes to ride.Can you guess the biggest draw?
No, not the toys, it's the trees, the fresh air and sunshinethe ability to pick your own snack...Critters we can find and observe
Princess drew the entire life cycle..Get outside in your backyard today, see what you can find....

This is my favorite time of year to be outdoors, and my favorite time to bring kids out. No longer need bug spray and sun screen, but don't need snow pants and boots yet. Just shoes, a light jacket, and out the door to collect leaves and acorns.

I agree, outdoor time is very important. Your yard looks like a great place to be!

I totally agree. I like Gavin to get at least 2 hours outdoors, but would prefer much more. 3 or 4! I try for 2 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon at least.

The people here (on base) say winter is too cold and bitter, so they let their (mostly badly-behaved, unsupervised) children outside now to wreck as much havoc as possible, before winter sets in.

Wimps, I say! It is just as important to get outdoors in the winter as it is in spring, summer and fall!

Have fun outdoors. Our day is just beginning (it is almost 9 a.m.), so it is time to get dressed and head outdoors until lunch time.

Thanks for reminding me that I want to kick Zoe out back everyday.

Your yard is the best! I love how much thought you put into making it fun and accessible.

Fun, fun! I agree.....we spend time outside every day - it's one of the most important things I think. Playing, caring for the animals, gardening....too much fun out there to be stuck inside all the time :)

oh...I just picked my first cabbage from my garden this fall. It is the first time I've ever been able to get it to actually grow! I was so excited, lol! I made cole slaw with it last night. YUM!

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
