Car Wash {The Outdoor Play Party}

Friday, April 27, 2012

Welcome to the Outdoor Play Party hosted by Mama Pea Pod, Greening Sam and Avery, Learning for Life, and myself.  The Outdoor Play Party is a spot to share our outdoor experiences with kids.

This past weekend Miss E helped me wash the car.  Most kids love playing with water, so this a great chore for kids to help a parent with.  It was fun, simple, and got the car clean.   And, it was long overdue for a good wash!

On the blog, I shared activities for kids who like to touch everything, and some of those are outdoor play ideas.  We have been observing our backyard creatures.  Check out this handsome fellow found sunbathing in our yard. We created body pictures with chalk and paint on the driveway.

Thank you for sharing a little bit of your lives with us in our blog hop.  It's such a treat to see happy kids playing outside.

Frog, Goose, and Bear inspires us to get creative when camping with our kids.  She shares many outdoor art and play ideas on her family's Easter camping trip.  Her photos are so beautiful it will make parents, even those who don't like camping, consider planning a camping trip.

Now, it's your turn to share your outdoor fun with kids in The Outdoor Play Party!

Thanks so much for hosting this awesome linky party! It is so encouraging to see lots of littles getting outside and doing what little ones should be doing with their days!

Thanks for including my camping pics - so much fun to be had out doors! I think we might need to follow your example this weekend and wash our car too!!

My kids are SO much happier when we get outdoors, and I'm forever grateful for the good weather. They also adore car washing...if only they could reach the top of the car. I'd be all set!

Oh, what fun! I loved washing the car as a kid! (Somehow it's less appealing as an adult???!)

@emma @ frog, goose and bear Did you wash the car this weekend?

@rachelle | tinkerlab Give them a few years, and you won't even need to help out with the top of the car. ;) My daughter is tall, so it'll be soon for us, I hope.

@Mama Pea Pod I had been paying for car washes before this, and then it dawned on me that she would love to wash the car with me. It's so much more fun washing the care with Miss E as a helper. By myself, not so much fun. ;)
