Disclosure: I am working with Springfree Trampoline, and I am excited to share my experiences and fun Springfree events with you! I have been compensated, but as always, all pictures, views and opinions are my own. We reaaaaally LOVE our Springfree trampoline! I even jump on it…shhhh don’t tell anyone.
I don’t know how it happened but spring has really arrived. One minute it was winter, then overnight spring came. Warm temperatures, frogs croaking, birds singing…it’s glorious! And when the weather is nice, my kids spend more time outdoors than ever. In fact, I make it mandatory…get off your video games and get outside.
Last year about this time we added a Springfree Trampoline to our backyard, and since then it is easier than ever to get my kids outside, all year round. Our teens even use it on a regular basis…there’s nothing more fun than a game of trampoline basketball!
But what I love most about having the trampoline in our yard is having the kids direct their own play time. I don’t have to entertain them…they entertain themselves. I truly believe that kids need to know how to play and entertain themselves, and trampolines are great for that! And they get exercise while having fun, so it’s a win-win for everyone. So when I learned about an event promoting outdoor free play, I knew I had to share it with you.
Springfree Trampolines and Earth Day Canada
Springfree Trampolines and Earth Day Canada have partnered up to get kids outside and active with a POP-UP Adventure Playground, coming to Calgary May 5! Springfree Trampoline and Earth Day Canada share core values that make them a perfect match…both believe that outdoor, child-directed free play is essential to a healthy and happy childhood. And because I believe in this too, when I learned about this exciting event I wanted to share it with you.
I think this initiative between Springfree and Earth Day Canada is fantastic. Being able to give kids the freedom to play, explore, discover and build is so important, and the more opportunities for free play that we can give kids, the better for everyone!
