We all know that being outdoors and exercise is extremely important, so we wanted to give you some suggestions/tips for making family-time outside fun and fresh! Not to mention Totsy is opening up the Great Outdoors sales this weekend equipped with baby carriers, sandals, swimwear and more! The Great Outdoors sales starts this Thursday at 9 pm EST, don’t forget to stop by!
In honor of our Great Outdoors sales, here are some fun, healthy and inexpensive outdoor activities you can share with your family!
Pack a Picnic: There is nothing quite like alfresco dining: the sun, the fresh air, it just seems to make the food taste better! Pack a picnic with your family; make sure to use outdoor friendly finger foods to make eating less messy! Sandwiches, chips, fruit, vegetables & dip are a good place to start, don’t forget to get the whole family involved in the kitchen! For drinks, it’s best to stick with juice boxes, less spills, our favorite? Capri Sun! And don’t think we forgot the adults here, check out this fun site, Bandit Wines, they have wine juice boxes that eliminates the heavy bottles and makes sipping wine a little more fun.
Team-Up: Play team sports. Team sports is a great way to build camaraderie and sportsmanship. You can make-up cute team names and make it a tradition of sorts! Not to mention that it’s great for your kid’s growing body!
Explore: Dig, smell, touch, build – kids are hands-on and love exploring. Collect rocks and seashells in mason jars, plant seeds in the dirt, play follow the leader while taking in the fresh air. It’s sure to be an adventurous hike!
Gardening: Teach your little one about the earth and mother nature through gardening. They’ll be sure to eat the veggies they planted with their own two hands. We love building a “Pizza Garden”. Get your hands on all the seeds you’ll need to “grow your pizza”. Start with basil, tomatoes, rosemary, oregano, onion, and green/red peppers. Help kids to prepare the soil and teach them how to plant. They’ll love to eat their own pizza sauce!
So what are you waiting for?? Get out there, enjoy the fresh air, and have some fun!! Totsy style, of course!
