I’ve noticed a funny thing here in California (at least in the Bay Area). When the temperature drops below 60F, kids disappear from the playgrounds. This morning before school, the thermostat was still hovering around the freezing point, yet the kids who arrived early had a blast running around on the playground. Really, parents, playing outside is healthy in all weather. If kids in Finland can play outdoors every day throughout the year, so can we here in California. Now let’s head outside for some fresh air and fun!
