Sometimes the perfect place to let your imagination run wild is in your own backyard. And, with a little planning ahead, an everyday playdate can turn into the adventure of a lifetime. Bonus points: it’ll get little ones out of the house (and loving it).

Garden Party

Spending time with nature cultivates a love for mother earth. What better way to learn how amazing our planet is than experiencing it’s magic first hand? Set up a gardening session with these adorable tools and seeds — kids will love watching their creations grow. Plus, they’ll get to play in the dirt, which we all know is irresistible.

Camping with Critters

Set an outdoorsy scene with a cute, kid-friendly tent and they’ll be ready to go become one with the wild things.  Extra credit: Serve up some gluten-free s’mores as a snack. But, beware: they’ll be having so much fun by the pretend campfire, that they may actually want to sleep outside.

Step into the Storybook

Give spark to their storytelling side (in a good way) by helping little ones create their own little fairytale. Invite butterflies to make friends by planting their favorite flowers. Then, offer up a tin of magic beans and take guesses on how tall the stalks will grow.
