After a brief pause in 2019 (to raise a baby to age one…let’s face it, that takes some time!), Let’s G.O. Kansas City is ready to get back outside. Please join us at upcoming events such as Parkville Nature Sanctuary’s Hike with Santa in just a few short weeks, and put some upcoming 2020 hike or play events on your calendar. You will find next year’s dates posted on our Events page, and stay tuned as they will soon be posted to our Facebook Page.
In 2020 we plan to host a hike and a playground visit each once per quarter, focusing on some of our favorite places in Kansas City. Please don’t forget to Sign Up, which helps us communicate with you and keeps us informed about attendance.
Connecting children with nature continues to be an important topic that is becoming increasingly prevalent in the news. While I may be preaching to the choir here, a few articles about getting kids time to play and be outside are below for perusal at your leisure:
- Parents and Children: The Power of Play
- Outdoor Play at Home Key for Young Children’s Health and Development
- Natural Play Spaces Can Benefit Children’s Health
Hope to see you out there!
