Set yourselves a task and head outside - even just in the backyard is fun. Maybe you'll look for flowers to photograph? Or you could search for letter and number shapes formed in random pieces of bark and leaves?
Or maybe you'll find something even cuter to snap!
Kids are often early risers during summer - it's the irony of having to wake them up all year but as soon as they're able to sleep in, they don't. (I hear this about kids, anyway; my girl is always up early.)
Sometimes, instead of bemoaning the early mornings, you have to embrace them. And there's no better way to start a summer's day than with a SPLASH!
The '31 Days Outside' series has been going for a week now, and I think it's time to ramp it up a bit! Let's have some fun with this - who wants to join in?
Join in via Instagram and/or Twitter with the hashtag #31DaysOutside
You don't have to do every day, just when you'd like to share the fun you're having outside - with your kids or alone, being active or lazing about. As long as you're outside somewhere, we can each share an insight into our summer days.
Now for day 7...
A day at home can be turned into a day of creation and imagination.
And personally, I think that mess creativity is sometimes best kept outside.
