When you live in a world where summer is a very small part of the year, there is no time to lose. You must get outside.
For us, it means a slower pace (if there is such a thing) and making sure to take advantage of all the summertime culture that is freely available to us. Our absolute favourite is a farmers market.
I truly love that farmers markets offer so much to a child. I also love that our small little town’s own farmers market has a wide range of stands and most of those stands have children actively assisting in them. It is a wealth of sensory experience, even if you don’t buy anything. It’s a chance for your child to see the people that grow the food and make the items and I can’t help but feel that it brings people a little closer together.
Of course, a stop at the baking stand is a very nice way to end the day.
What are some of your favourite ways to spend time outside alone or with a child?
