Do you take your little one outside to play? what do you do with baby outside? Does your baby like it outside?

Jacob loves being outside and will actually get really mad and start crying when I bring him back inside. I have a baby swing on our swing set so sometimes I will let him swing with Jackson and sometimes I will just lay a blanket out and we will play on the blanket. We also have a porch with a gate so when I am cooking dinner I will let him play on the porch.

Jackson's favorite thing to do outside now is get his bull dozer and dig in the dirt. Makes a huge mess but he loves it so I let him and then clean him off before he can come back inside.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Jackson loves anything outside! Dh takes him for a walk every night if the weather is good. He got a bunch of fun outdoor stuff for his birthday that we need to set up and I am sure he will love it!

Kira and I both love being outside but our house has no yard because of the very steep hillside.

We have a swing and small plastic slide set up on the master bedroom balcony so at least we can get some fresh air. But if we want to run around on grass or go to a park, it's a 15 minute drive away.

I really love our house but if we were doing it all over again I think I would prioritize having some sort of yard.

JR likes to play outside with Allison but it's been so hot we aren't doing much of it! He loves to go on the back porch and drive the Cozy Coupe around or swing in the baby swing.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

Liam is obsessed with outside GOGOGO is all i hear all day, He has a little playset in the backyard and a water table which he loves, he also has a bubble mower and a rake and shovel so he can work like daddy. And we go for walks with the dog too. We were spending a lot of time outside but the last week has been miserably rainy and he just doesnt understand why we cant be out.

We usually go out to the park and have some frisbee activities. But as she grow old, we noticed that she has some other passion which is cooking. I bought her Little Tikes Backyard Barbeque Get Out 'N Grill and she really likes it. I can say this toy is typically best for 4-6 years old. It's really good backyard playset.

Absolutely. We play outside all of the time, weather permitting. My husband finally built a sandbox under our backyard deck this year, and that has been amazeballs. It's mostly shaded by virtue of being underneath the deck, and now that my kids are old enough (we live way out in the boonies - so no neighbors or lurkers), its great to be able to send them out there to play on their own while mom is cooking, etc. When they were younger, walks in the jogging stroller (not that I jog...I just need the big wheels to get around our woods ) and with the Beco carrier were a must.
