Spring has finally arrived and the forecast for the week looks promising for warmer weather.  The girls and I will be participating in the 4th Annual Polarn O. Pyret’s Every Day a Play Day challenge and try to spend more time outside playing.   Twice a year, Polarn O. Pyret challenges parents to get their kids outside to play for an entire week.  Activities can include walking to school, meeting friends at a playground or taking a walk through a nearby park. The goal is to get families out enjoying the outdoors no matter what the weather.    During the last Every Day a Play Day week, Polarn O. Pyret logged 1,104.5 hours of play in 31 states. Take the challenge and head outside to help Polarn O. Pyret log more hours this week.

Here are the details:
When: April 8-14, 2013
Where: Outside
What should I bring: Clothes for the weather, a camera, a great attitude and creativity.
How you can participate:
1) Go outside and play with your kids. Send us your photos to Polarn O. Pyret and tell them what you did. Each day they will randomly select one $50 gift certificate winner from all those who have submitted photos and/or stories. Stories and photos can be uploaded here: http://theplayfullife.polarnopyretusa.com/every-day-a-play-day-log-sheet/
2) Keep track of how much time you played outside each day and let Polarn O. Pyret know on Facebook. They are trying to beat the 1,100 hours from November.
3) Share your photos on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. Be sure to tag us #polarnopyretusa and #everydayaplayday.

Happy Playing!
