My newest desperate-attempt-to-use-up-30-more-minutes include a back-yard adventure. I bring the kids to every little area in the yard and have them do something there for 2minutes before racing E to the next place. It actually works amazingly well, and plus there are so great opportunities for them to learn textures, sounds, and colors of the outdoors! A few of our favorites…..the swing, the bumpy-wood, and the big stump. Climbing trees, jumping from the deck, and the bird-bath are also a huge hit!
