While we were out last week on our play it by ear day, we stopped at Aliso Park and the kiddos played till it was dark. They had a great time and honestly couldn’t stop talking about it for days. They played in the sand, they swung as high as they could(“push me to the sky Mom”) and pretended they were pirates on a ship. I remembered once again the importance of free/open play and making sure the kiddos have the opportunity to let their imaginations run wild and of course get the wiggles all out of the way.
It was a great reminder to not forget to take the time to go out and play!
