Get outside this summer is our family mantra this year. We are outside all the time as long as it is not raining. We have long days from swim lessons, playing in the pond, day trips to the zoo and so much more. Our summer is chock full of activities.
TruGreen is on a mission to encourage people to spend more time outside. Put down the electronics, shut off the tv and get moving. Take the dog for a walk in the early morning hours or go for a nature walk with the kids – but get outside!
My kids love taking large bags with us when we go for walks and they put all of their treasures that they find into these bags. From cool shaped rocks to pinecones and acorns, you never know what you are going to find. My oldest loves taking photos (I wonder where he gets that from!) wherever we go and it keeps him active and moving as well.
Did you know that instead of outdoor play, children ages 8 to 18 devote an average of 7 hours and 38 minutes using entertainment media in a typical day? I can totally relate, my oldest (age 14) has his phone attached to his hand at all times, but we make a decision to be more active in our home and I think the kids are happier and healthier for it.
