Rebekah is mom to a preschooler, Miss E, and writes a wonderful blog about play and learning activities for preschoolers, with lots of focus on outdoor play. She is also a regular participant here at the Outdoor Play Party. In case you missed it, be sure to check out her recent post, Take Play Outdoors, in which she includes some fantastic tips for getting your kids playing outdoors more.
This week we've had more snow (just in time for our move this weekend - with, of course, more snow forecast ALL WEEKEND LONG! How perfect!). That said, it has been really fun to play in, and the girls are loving it! Sadly, Princess Pea's preschool doesn't seem to be as into the snow as we are, as they kept them indoors :-( So we've had to try to squeeze in some snow time in the short time between after school and dinner time. Just long enough to make some snow angels and throw a few snowballs at Mummy!

"OK, but I'm in my work clothes, so only on my jacket please."

Last week's party included 24 brilliant ideas for playing outdoors, and I particularly enjoyed this Watercolour Painting with the Rain, shared by Make Do and Friend.
Now, are you ready to party?!
