Let's face it, no matter how much we'd LOVE for the kids to spend more time outdoors, sometimes it's an uphill battle. 

"But Moooom, it's too hot." (can you hear the whine in that -- oh yeah)

"There's nothing to do outside."

Share some of these awesome ideas with them and the kids will be BEGGING you to spend more time outside.
