30 Days of Outdoor Play

Dirt Girl World on Facebook has spent September encouraging kids to spend time outside with their 30 Days of Getting Grubby. We have been following along with and loving their ideas for things to do outside! If you are not yet following them on Facebook I highly recommend that you do! It is a wonderful community of people sharing their kids adventures where you can read inspiring quotes and find amazing ideas for your garden and of course activities for your kids to do.

Below is their complete list of 30 Days of Getting Grubby. We haven't completed them all yet but you can see our photos from the ones that we have done and I will add more as we check them all off!
