There are many benefits of spending time outdoors and doing physical activities like scooting, cycling or just running around. As my fellow nature lover friend put it, through weekend wanderings in nature you get not only nature inspiration and therapy, but also exercise, rejuvenating body and mind. One of my favourite nature quotes is by John Muir:
"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul."For my family, spending time outdoors is like hitting three birds in one stone. We get physical exercise, quality bonding time and nature therapy. I enjoy planning our family outings in advance. I even have a list of 5 things we need to create a fun and memorable time outdoors. Your list may differ from mine so please read on:
1) Glass-fired Oven
2) Picnic mat
electric scooters like the one pictured above sound and look enticing, I still prefer the manual ones because the kids get to scoot and exercise at the same time. Getting free exercise through physical activities on a family outing is a must for us.
4) Foldable bike
foldable bike. I love how convenient it is to transport from one place to another, we can even take the train with it. It also fits perfectly inside the car boot whenever we take a cab to the beach park or botanic gardens for a picnic. K and my husband, M love to cycle. G have yet to learn how to cycle so he prefers to scoot. Myself? I tell you a big secret. *Whispers* I have yet to learn how to cycle too. Please don't laugh at me okay?
5) Polaroid camera
polaroid camera that comes with an instax printer. It will save me the trouble to save photos and go to a photo printing shop! Best of all, we can see and adore our precious family photos right away!
There goes my list. How about you, what are your family outing essentials?
