Outdoor Play Party - Guest Post from Growing Inch By Inch.

For the latest Outdoor Play Party I am delighted to welcome Jessica Lewis Owner & Lead Teacher at Growing Inch by Inch Preschool in Maine. Jessica and I have been friends through social media for a couple of years now and I love watching the adventures her charges get up to in all weathers.Here Jessica celebrates the start of Spring after a long, long snowy Winter!

I could take a million pictures and videos of the children playing in their rain suits.  
I could watch them all day long.   
To me, those suits represent the feeling of freedom. 
Free from the snow and the long winter! 
Free to be wild and messy! 
Free to discover and explore! 
Something about those rain suits gives the children the freedom to be children!  Free to laugh and have fun! 
And that is something I could watch forever! 

My favourite post from the last link up was from a lovely new blog to me: Hen Family: I loved this post about how to enjoy being outdoors all year round; Getting Outside in All Seasons.

  1. I love those rain suits...

    1. Aren't they great, from a company called Oakiwear I think.

  2. It has been such a long winter- it is pure joy to see the kids able to enjoy being outdoors again!

    1. I know I'm not supposed to complain about the weather but warmer weather is much easier to be outdoors in for sure!

  3. Getting out in all weather is so important and these rain suits are great. I have plans for a mud kitchen here after watching your children enjoy one for so long.

  4. Rain suits have to be one of the best inventions ever! Like Jessica says, total freedom :-)
