Friday: After School Outdoor Games

September 5th, 2008 in Friday: Play!

How cool of a Mom would you be if your house one day a week after school was the place to come and have fun? Why not host your own weekly after school outdoor games? Help all the neighborhood Moms out by giving them something to do OUTSIDE to help them get away from the video games.

Need some ideas? Here are a few of my favorite growing up and some I have never heard of:
