One of my kids’ favorite things to do is go to a playground to play. They will play, climb, swing, jump, and slide for hours. And if there is a sand pit, my youngest will become a filfthy mess and wonder out loud, “mommy, why don’t we have a sand box.” When it is time to leave, I usually need to strip her down to her undies before she gets into her car seat. At which point I say back to her, “this is why we don’t have a sand box.”
My girls have their favorite playground, but I like to mix things up and take them to a different one each week. Why? It prevents boredom…plain and simple. Each playground visit is a new experience with different kids to play with and different equipment to explore and I don’t mind driving a few extra miles to try a new park. We pack snacks, water, and sunscreen and head out in the morning to beat the high afternoon heat.
Do you have a favorite park? Try a new this week…mix it up a little.
