This summer we made sure to get out every day and enjoy the sun and time off from school, and discovered that our boys are quite the little athletes. In past years they sort of sat on the sidelines and watched other kids play, having no interest in joining in, so this year we decided to get them some play items for the house. If their apprehension was out of shyness with the unfamiliar, well…now they can do it at home first.
Our sons had a great time in our backyard playing with various ride-on cars, scooters, and their new Little Tikes Adjust ‘n Jam Pro basketball hoop…perfectly sized for tots 3+ (and it grows with them).
They discovered a love of shooting hoops (albeit not that high up, but it’s adjustable) and kicking a ball around that resulted in us signing them up for lessons and teams this fall…and they are so excited! I’m so glad we got it for our backyard and found a way to break them out of their shells…they want to play everything everywhere we go now!
How are you getting out to play this year?
