  • My YDS (8) is usually looking for critters, turtles, snakes, lizards, frogs, or some other creepy crawly. Other than that we are at the pool, lake, or river. It's too hot here for the park in my opinion.

  • My son is 5 1/2, daughter just turned 4 last week..... she finally got the big girl bike she's been dreaming of so their #1's are both biking (my son has a Hot Wheels one from a few Summers ago)

    Next for daughter is chalk, being pushed on the swing, working on her pumping, and riding her scooter.
    Son ..... slide, chase games, freeze tag, and going for walks/exploring.

  • I have 2 girls 7 and 2 1/2. They both have the same preferences for playing outside. 1. Playing on the playground at the school or park. 2. Swings at home. 3. Slide at home 4. Playing house in the play structure in our back yard. 5. Playing in the sandbox in our back yard. Today, they moved a big rock and found bugs and worms. They had a lot of fun investigating the bugs and wanted to bring them in and keep them as pets!

  • My daughter loves going to the park and playing on everything. She is also really enjoying the pool so far this summer, mostly because it's the first year she can swim on her own, she's like a little fish! Other than that she likes riding her tricycle and going on walks, drawing with chalk, and playing in the grass doing "gymnastics" and such.
