It’s A Good Day For The Park

Never underestimate the value of free time and play for toddlers and pre-k’s. Everything in their environment is teaching them something. Just playing in the yard is a sensory experience. All around them the world is buzzing. Think about it, the grass is green and they see a few monarchs passing by on their yearly migration. There they just learned more about nature then two books could have taught them. But only if you the parent picks up on these things and expounds on it.

Today, we went to the park for a ton of free time. No books, no worksheets just old fashioned fun. The kids love the socialization, and they really like getting all of their energy out. Check out your local park while the weather is still nice soon enough we may all be snowed in and that will be time enough for inside play.

With fall coming this weekend should offer you a ton of local spots to hit. Fairs are in full bloom with the harvest moon upon us, so Google those and take the kids to see what the local farms have worked on all summer long. We plan on hitting the local Belchertown Fall Festival tomorrow night. I love the chickens and my kids do too.

Still waiting on that farm…
