In the past few months I’ve read several books that I would love to recommend to you. Some are kids activities books, some are parenting books, and other are great books about simplifying your life. I truly do love all of these books and can’t wait to share them all with you.
I first purchased Fifteen Minutes Outside: 365 Ways to Get Out of the House and Connect with Your Kids by Rebecca P. Cohenfor two reasons.
First, I believe outdoor play is very important for my girls, but sometimes I need a little extra push.
Second, I can never resist a book of lists! This book did not disappoint at all.
Cohen begins the book by talking about the importance of outdoor play, then she continues on to show you just how easy it is to get outside and have fun.
She gives you 365 ideas, one for every day of the year. Her ideas are not at all complicated. They’re easy to plan, cost little to no money, and many can be done spur of the moment.
Some of the ideas you may do all of the time; others may be something you’ve never thought of before.
But, I guarantee you’ll find some ideas that will make you want to put the book down and rush outside with your kids.
What are your favorite ways to play outside?
