I’m so excited to download the guide. At 11 months old, Baby has spent a ton of time outdoors in all seasons, but that has mostly been riding on Mama for hikes and walks. Now that he is starting to be mobile, I want to make sure he plays freely outside and explore. Acacia Moore June 6, 2011 at 10:05 pm I’m so glad you enjoyed the article! Watching my youngest (13 month old) toddle around the yard and parks is one of my favorite things to do, watching him discover the world through his own wanderings is beautiful! Jenn mbjunction June 3, 2011 at 4:03 pm I love this post. I was an outdoors child and the statistics you cite about the hours of television are scary. Can I add a book recommendation? If you can find Puddles and Wings and Grapevine Swings – Amazon often has it available used for a couple of bucks – get it. It is a huge book of fun activities for kids that get them out in nature. It was my favorite book as a child and I have had a copy ready for my son for years. Acacia Moore June 6, 2011 at 10:07 pm Thank you for the book recommendation! We’ll be checking it out right away, we love to find new favorites! Amy McCarty June 5, 2011 at 11:30 am This is a great post! I think it is really important for parents to just let kids play. In our society we are so focused on materialistic things. All this so called “baby gear” is un-needed. If you have ever seen the doc “babies” and seen the little African babies they have a BLAST just playing in the dirt and with old stones! Nothing helps a kids imagination grow more than being able to see a crazy adventure in a pile of old trees and stones! 😀 Thank you for this. 🙂 Acacia Moore June 6, 2011 at 10:10 pm Can you believe I still haven’t seen that movie!? After watching my lil ones wander around streams and woods at the campground this weekend, I feel like I am providing them with such awesome opportunites! They are soooo in their element when they are outdoors, even my 13 month old exploring everything new. Have fun watching your little ones outdoors!
