Tips for have a successful Outdoor Play Time:

If we are going out further than the yard, I pop R in our umbrella stroller and head out. I always bring a sippy cup with water and R’s dry snacks container. Before leaving any place, I let R know that we will be leaving soon. We both wave and say goodbye. When I strap her back into the stroller to head home, I hand her the water and snacks. In this way, we making leaving a positive experience.
