Congratulations to Jessica R.! She is the winner of the $20 Polarn O. Pyret voucher. Thanks for entering and play on!
Spring has definitely sprung here in Indiana. For the first time this year I sent the children off to school in short sleeves and no jackets.
It’s easy to shoo the children (and yourself) out the door in weather like this: sunny, balmy, delicious. But I would challenge us to make Every Day a Play Day, no matter what the weather. This week the good folks at Polarn O. Pyret are celebrating Every Day a Play Day, and encouraging families to play outside every day this week.
Play outside in the summer, when creeks demand stomping.
Play outside in the fall, when the wooliest of caterpillars demand inspection.
Play outside in the winter, when your backyard becomes a hockey rink and demands a pick-up game (just don’t lacerate your kidney, okay?).
And of course, play outside in the spring, when worms demand you pick them up.
Polarn O. Pyret wants to make it easier for families to spend time outside this spring when the conditions aren’t quite as lovely as they are here in Indiana today. Check out their Spring Outerwear line, and snap some up while it’s up to 25% off (now through March 18).
Even 15 minutes a day outside makes a difference in everyone’s attitude, from the biggest people down to the very smallest. No matter what the weather, there’s always something fun to do or explore. What will you do outside this week? Let me know and I will choose one comment at random to win a $20 voucher to Polarn O. Pyret. Giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m Eastern on Sunday, March 18, 2012.
