It’s a been a while since I’ve updated you on Jada’s very favorite things. Today, we’ll explore her favorite outdoor activities, most of them being free.
Favorite Outdoor Play Time
1. Flower Parks
There is a garden/park on campus that she absolutely loves. Her senses are probably going crazy with all the colors, textures, and smells. She never gets bored, especially when there is an area designed specifically for children.
2. Construction Sites & Machines
Here are the winners & still going strong, like we read them multiple times a day!
3. Backyard Pool
Jada does full blown cannonballs in her little pool. No better way to cool off after a morning of play and ensure a quality afternoon nap!
4. Crafty Things
With warm weather, we take art outside. She was in a coloring book kick for quite a while, but I think she digs the freedom of paint. Play doh is a current favorite too!
5. Walks with Cooper
She loves to help me fill his collapsible Fabric travel bowl during our walks to the nearby park. She is an animal lover and wants to pet all the dogs she sees. Hmmm, wonder where she gets that?
6. Natural Playscapes
Playgrounds are easy and usually around every corner. But, how about a completely natural playground?
We just discovered this natural playscape, and Jada loved playing in the water, climbing the rocks, and simply exploring the new textures.
7. Splash Parks
We are looking forward to finding some of these in Chicago the area!
I’m a huge believer in experiences over materials, and would love to hear some of YOUR little one’s favorites!
