Reminder – Take a Child Outside Week!

September 22, 2011 at 1:00 am Leave a comment

This year Take a Child Outside week is September 24th – September 30th, which means it starts THIS Saturday! T.A.C.O. Week is a favorite of mine and I have been observing it since 2007. This year promises to be a little different though. It’s the first year where I don’t have to borrow a child to participate!🙂

Need ideas? Here are a few from past adventures Ryan and I have shared with children:

Wedding Weekend - Rowing Newport News Park - Ann and Vicky Relay while Penn and Gwyn RowRowing Canoeing Merchant's Millpond - Ryan and Jacal's Boat - Vicky, Tyrek, Ryan in Action
Canoeing
Maple Park - Jacal Signs Log Book
Geocaching
Hunter Street Water Fight - Filling Up
Water Fight!
Hunter Street Badminton - Tykee Watches Dontori
Badminton
Elizabeth City - Hunter Street- Tykee on Bike
Biking
Falls Ridge - Xavier has a Snail
Hiking
Jet Skiing - Jamonte and Armani on Shore
Beach

If you are in the Blacksburg, Virginia area and need some hiking ideas, check out my “Off the Beaten Paths: Hikes for T.A.C.O. Week” post which highlights five child-friendly trails in the area.

Whereever you are, have a great Take a Child Outside Week! Perhaps you’ll luck out and get to see a black bear like five-year old Penn and I did in 2007. If not, don’t forget there is adventure to be found in the little things– as young Xavier demonstrated when he discovered a snail in 2008.
