We have come up with a list of 50 Ways to Play Outside. All ideas are either free, or cheap! And most are easy to do around the home, but feel free to get down to your local park or enjoy some new surroundings! 

Hopefully these ideas will be enough to keep your gang busy, get you through this last week, and spark some new reasons to get outdoors. Then print it out and keep it on the fridge for afternoons and weekends.
