I ALWAYS have the intention to go outside more and to let the kids play and get dirty. But we end up inside way too often for my liking. I believe it’s healthy for them to just use their imagination and use nature to play hide and seek, soccer or any game that they invent themselves. In our household, we try to limit Ipad time to just one day a week (on Sunday to be specific) and then they get to use it for approximately 20 minutes each. Even though this is quite a short time, I notice a huge difference in their behavior (especially the boys!) and they get angry, tired and irritated much easier when they have played on it. And me too, I get irritated when we lost a day sitting inside. So a couple of weeks ago, when the weather was sunny, we got outside again, just to run and play. I took a few snaps while at it. Looking at these I’m thinking… we should get outside more, haha! They wear gorgeous clothes from Carrement Beau and Billiebandit. The shoes are from Bisgaard, of course. Do you go outside much with your kiddos?
