We’ve been subjected to a few weeks of up-and-down weather lately, but it looks like the forecast is in our favor. (Cross your fingers!) If your child is excited to go outside and have some fun, he’s not alone. To further inspire that love of having fun outside, take a look at this week’s roundup. We’ve found a few ideas all inspired by playing outside or sourcing your very own craft supplies right out your own back door.
