Getting kids outdoors!

6 posts in this topic

Saturday afternoon is Nicleodeon's World Wide Day of Play, focused on getting kids away from the TV and other electronics and into the outdoors. (I realize that, this year, it also happens to be Yom Kippur for those who celebrate that holiday.)

So now I'm asking, do you feel that your kids/GC play outside enough? And what do they generally do when they're out there?

(I know we've talked about this before, but it has been a while and new members have joined us since then.)

My grandkids get outside a lot. My son has a trampoline and a basketball hoop set up outside and they are always playing on these. My daughter makes sure that her 2 get outside everyday and away from the tv.

My DGC get outdoors a lot, too, especially, of course, when the weather is good. Despite all the fun electronics in their home, which they thoroughly enjoy, they still love to go to the park, play in the yard, ride their bikes and scooters, etc. When weather and schedules permit, they also, often, go somewhere to hike w/ ODD and SIL. (In the summer, they also enjoyed swimming, etc. at my pool club and a couple of visits to the beach w/ their mom and friends, etc.). Like your daughter, homey, their mom/my YDD encourages all this, as well. :)

My teen ages GD still likes to piddle in the pond.  She can play with little fish or tadpoles for hours.  She also helps change the water and filters and repot the plants.  For yeas she would spend her spring break here helping me open them back up for the summer.  She would still if I would ask.

I know my grandson doesnt get out enough.  I have to admit though its not usually his fault.  Lots of times its mine and at the end of the day I am so tired lol.  However lately that has started changing.  We do get him out a lot more.  He loves riding his bike, going for waljs and playing with his nerf guns to mention only a few things.
