November 7th: National Play Outside Day!

When is the last time you put your phone down or stepped away from the election coverage? I’m thinking you need a break. I sure do!

Just in time…today is National Play Outside Day. Do you need a few ideas?

  • Explore hiking trails near you.
  • Check out every park in your neighborhood and climb, slide, swing on every playground set.
  • Start a game of catch, kickball, tag, Frisbee or make up a game.
  • Go to the beach.
  • Run through the sprinkler.
  • Go camping.
  • Go fishing.
  • Fly a kite.
  • Jump in a pile of leaves.
  • Build a fort – of leaves or snow or whatever is handy.
  • Walk around the block.
  • Go for a bike ride.
  • Go sledding. I’m sure it’s knowing somewhere!
  • Identify the constellations at night and look for meteors.
  • Visit your favorite state or national park.

I plan on taking my dog to the local park and walking a few miles. He loves it and so do I. Then I’ll work on cleaning up my yard, since the flowerbeds are in dire need of attention. How about you?
