1000 Hours Outside Challenge: Outdoor Activities To Enjoy

In the new year, one of my resolutions was to get outside more. I decided to join the 1000 hours outside challenge. It's a movement to match (or hopefully surpass) the amount of screen time kids receive each year.

Having the challenge in place makes it so fun to stay motivated, get creative, and explore! You can read more about 1000 hours outside here. The adventure wallet and travel pencil case are perfect for this challenge and documenting all of your adventures.

Here are 3 fun ideas of things to do outside to get those hours in:

Nature i-spy: Create a list of items to search for on your walk. If you live somewhere that isn't currently covered by snow you could also make it more challenging by adding a certain color to search for. It keeps those little minds busy and engaged while finding things to complete their list!

Beach toys: No matter where you live, dig out those beach toys! Beach toys are not only a blast to use in dirt and at the beach, but they're also fun to use with snow. 

Make bird feeders: With colder temperatures, and less leaves we always love to make bird feeders to give the birds some extra food. All you need is a pinecone (which you can find on your adventures), peanut butter, a string, and bird seed.

1. Tie the string to the top of the pinecone

2. Roll the pinecone in peanut butter

3. Cover the peanut butter with bird seed

4. Hang on a tree for birds to enjoy!

There is so much to explore outside. I hope these ideas will inspire you to join in!

Traveling With Toddlers

So handmade range of travel toys are ideal companions for your travels, dining outings, or visits to Grandma's house.

Active toddlers and preschoolers often have abundant energy to expend while waiting at restaurants, during flights, or car rides. Being on the move shouldn't hinder their enjoyment of imaginative play!

The idea is straightforward: provide children with tangible toys suitable for play anywhere, ensuring they're portable and easy to manage.

Offering handmade toys as an option empowers kids to unleash their creativity, filling in colors and sounds against the canvas of a simple roadmap.
