Playing + Learning + Outside = Fun

It doesn't take much. It really doesn't.
God's great big world and fresh air and imagination.

Build some freedom into your day for time to play outside and you've got a recipe for happiness.

Add a friend or two, and the fun likely increases.

Add some gentle, guided learning experiences and sometimes the joy of outside play shadows any real awareness that learning is happening.

Movement and creativity. Nature and imagination. These are the best ways to learn. And, this being said from Ms. Read-a-Book-a-Week-if-You-Can.
Sometimes it's a walk in the woods. Sometimes it's friends with a ball in wide open grass. Sometimes it's animals. Sometimes it's gardens and fountains. Sometimes it's a creek and rocks. Sometimes it's a swing in the breeze.

But all of the time it's with God's creation stamp on it.
Frustrated with winter? Feeling in a rut? Wishing you had down time?

Go outside.
It's doesn't have to be long. It doesn't have to involve much. But it will do a body (and mind) will thank you.
I promise.
