One of our favorite things to do when we travel is find neighborhood parks to play at. Some of the parks we have discovered are so grand and amazing that we add them to our day trip list. The day trip list consists of locations that are within a two hour radius from our home. These are places we can choose to go to during school breaks or the kids can choose one when they fill the bead jar up for displaying good thoughtful behaviors.
At home we make it a game to scout out all the parks in our city as well. This summer our goal is to visit all the parks in our city. Our playgroup friends have join in on the adventure. Each week we pick a new venue to meet at. To get the kids more involved we hung up a map to mark all the parks we find. The parks the kids like the best get a shiny star sticker.
