Can you prepare to be spontaneous? Isn’t that an oxymoron?
Absolutely not! We moms can engineer a little fun on purpose. When we do the planning ahead of time, the activity can be even more relaxed, and exciting! (And when I have a free printable chart for you, that makes it even easier!)
We live about half a block from a little neighborhood park. It’s a fine park and we go there all the time. But it’s hot- no shade at all. And, we’ve done everything there is to do there—lots of times. Last summer, when my kids asked to go to the park, I found myself starting to resist.
So I went to our local parks and rec website to look for a new park to try—and it turned out there were a ton! I wasn’t sure which to try first, or how to remember our favorites…and so, Park Hopping was born.
