When you’re building a new habit, it’s important to remember that even baby steps make a difference. Some weeknights, we might only get fifteen minutes outside, before we head inside for our dinner and bedtime routine. But that’s fifteen minutes of fresh air, giant leaps, and shouts of laughter.
If you’re working to build an outside play habit, the book Fifteen Minutes Outside: 365 Ways to Get Out of the House and Connect with Your Kids by Rebecca Cohen is a great resource. Cohen also has a blog that’s worth checking out.
Today, we were happy to spend a couple of hours outside after school. Happy Friday!
