Plan Interesting Places to Visit
The backyard may be the easiest option to get children playing outside, but by planning a little, you can find other interesting places to take your children. Katherine shares a few ideas:
- Walk to a neighborhood park. Parks are usually the best places to go for throwing around a ball or playing group games outdoors.
- Visit a nature center. Nature preserves, public gardens and arboretums welcome visitors to walk around and enjoy their sites. Some places even have special children's areas designed for kids to play.
