7 Creative Ways to Take Your Kids' Favorite Activities Outside

Kids outsideSummer is a time of fresh air, lightning bugs, and getting the kids out of the darn house! Maybe it's because I live in Minnesota, where we only get so many warm days per year, but I am pretty adamant about my two kids (3 and 7) having outdoor time every day during the summer.


Sometimes, however, they claim to be "so bored" with all their usual outdoor toys and games. So I've devised a list of indoor activities that they can do outside when they need some fresh ideas. Read on for my ideas and don't hesitate to share any brilliant "inside out" ideas you have! We still have some more fabulous weather in store, right?
