While there are about a zillion things to do in NE Ohio, and we love going out to do them, we also spend lots of time with the kids in our own backyard. Play time is not just about the kiddos in our home. No, siree! My husband and I also love to get silly, have fun, and be active with our little ones. Life is just too short to let my kids' childhoods pass me by, so I love interacting and playing with them as much as possible. They're only little once, right?!
Since enjoying active time as a family is so important to me, I have made the playdate promise, and am an active part of the Active Family Project. This great initiative, brought to you by Merck Consumer Care, encourages families to get out and play together. Active families are happy, healthy families, after all.
Here are just a few of the family playdate activities we will be enjoying all summer long. Some are here in our yard, and some are at the wonderful places in my town. Regardless, we will be having a blast playing with our children!
In My Own Backyard :
One of the things we have done is purchase this awesome wooden playground. It has swings, a glider, monkey bars, and even a slide and 2 level play house. This is something my kids use daily, and we have so much fun swinging, sliding, and just having quality time together. (The rest of the neighborhood kids seem to really like it, too!)
Around My Town :
What are you doing this summer? Will you be making playdates with your children? I'd love to hear about it!
