Springtime? Is that you?

Just over three years ago I was truly inspired by the amazing outdoor play experiences that take place over at Learning for Life

Their motto is:

 "Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, and snow is exhilarating; there is no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather." John Ruskin 1819-1900

The pictures on Kierna's blog always amazed me. Seeing all the children playing in the mud. And what are those suits that they are wearing? Surely that must just be something they have in Northern Ireland, not here in the USA. So glad that I learned otherwise and discovered our Oakiwear Rain Suits. This is our second spring with them and last week it was finally warm enough to shed the snowsuits.

They keep us dry on the rainiest days. The suits allow them to sit, jump and splash in puddles without having to spend the rest of the morning waiting for their turn to change out of wet clothes. (Not to mention it saves on laundry for parents)

 Kids that would be hesitant to get messy before feel that they have a whole new sense of freedom.

Always proud to be a part of the...

Learning for Life


  1. Lovely to hear about how we helped each other in our outdoor journeys, who knows where we'll be in 2 years time! I hope the snow is away for another year & look forward to following your Springy adventures.

  2. The right clothing makes such a difference doesn't it. Thanks so much for sharing at the Outdoor Play Party :-)
