Play – often and outside.

A lovely and talented friend of mine “from across the pond” tells me that August 6th, 2008 is National PlayDay in England. Playful events will take place throughout the country on that day. Many events are organized by England’s National Children’s Bureau whose motto is: “Letting children go out to play is one of the best things that parents can do for their children’s health.”

I SO agree. In fact, not so long ago I created a Flickr group called No Child Left Inside in order to bring parents and caretakers together to share photos and exchange information about exploring the wonder and beauty of the outdoors with our children. The group currently has over 150 members … and some amazing photos. Please check it out.
Then … get off the computer and get outside to play 😉
