Enter one such expert, my dear friend Kari Svenneby. Kari is the founder of ActiveKidsClub.com, a grass roots community helping connect children and adults to the outdoors by providing simple and creative ways to get outside through play, cooking and lifestyle. She’s a true outdoor advocate and a huge proponent of getting kids outside no matter what the weather.
Full disclosure: Kari created and sells ActiveKidsClub.com’s safety reflectors. (I reviewed them here if you want to learn more.) But any reflective items, reflective tape or glow sticks can be used for this activity.
Day 4: Hunt for heart reflectors.
You might think it’s hard to get outside when there is snow and you live in a cold climate. But the real downer is when it’s cold with no snow. (With a wonderful cover of the white stuff, the world of play opens with so much more to create and play.)
So with our winter so far being a bit lean in the snow department, it can mean outdoor time sometimes is just well ... a bit gray. That’s why I created the heart hunt game.
Consider it a fun, bad weather, outdoor hide-and-seek game. All you need to get started are a handful of reflectors, a gray day or darkness, and some playful kids. For the full details, head over to see Kari’s heart hunt on ActiveKidsClub.com.
