As our kids grow up, we tend to obsess over their development and wonder if they are on a healthy path towards their next social and emotional milestones. But it can be hard to know what “typical” developmental milestones are and what to look for as our kids progress.
We’re so excited to be seeing warmer temps and springtime weather all across the country. And as things warm up, we’re able to spend more time outdoors as a family, which means more fresh air, sunshine, and energy throughout the days and weeks. As parents, we know there are dozens of ways to spice up outdoor fun or entice little ones of all ages to spend more time outdoors. Relying on fun toys and activities is a great way to encourage outdoor play and keep our kiddos busy while they can enjoy time outside on their own, with friends or siblings, or as a family.
While many of our recent blog posts have offered inspiration and motivation to help you and your families get outside, enjoy the summer weather, stay active, and make memories during the break from school, we know that for most families, boredom will eventually set in. Especially for kiddos who have to keep themselves entertained while mom or dad are working from home or taking care of things around the house.
