It’s going to be nice outside in Chicago this Memorial Day weekend – Yeah!!! So, I’ve been trying to put together a few ideas of things we can do outside as a family. We’re going to ride our bikes over to watch our local Memorial Day Parade. (Psst! Like how my daughter turned her bike into a horse? We sell the Handlebar Horse Bike Accessory at www.ChocolateCakeClub.com.)
We’re going to meet up with another family for dinner one night where we can eat al fresco. (I’m going to finally get to see Iron Man 2, but that has nothing to do with outside. I’m just really looking forward to finally seeing a grown-up movie.)
My daughter built a toad cottage and wants to hunt for toads but I don’t know how successful we’ll be. Toads seem to have this magic ability to only be found when you don’t want to find one. Darn you, Toads!
But as I was cruising around the web this morning I came across this post on the TeachMama blog that I had to share as a great outside fun idea. Amy, the author, calls it a Backyard Rainbow Hunt and I call it a great way to spend time outside enjoying nature and making something together.
What are you going to do for fun this weekend? Whatever you decide to do, have fun with your family! Happy Memorial Day!
