It’s time to play outside, and we are not just talking about the kids.

Find joy in the little things The little things, we loved them as kids and our kids love them now… and mostly, the little things are easy to do and right outside our front door. What are the ‘little things’? Jumping in puddles with your kids, not watching. Just imagine the joy on their faces when you put your gumboots too and join in, these are memories that they won’t forget. Practise skimming rocks. Waste the day away, listening to the waves, and throwing rocks into the water. Collect Autumn leaves and create a collage Bubbles! Invest in a bubble wand, it’s such simple fun to get outside and jump around to pop bubbles. You can easily make your own mix, just google ‘non-toxic bubble mix’ and find a recipe that suits you.
