Come Out and Play! Family Nature Club

Do you ever need an incentive to get outside with your kids? I certainly do. I always feel so guilty when I see parents post pictures of themselves outside with their kids looking like they are having a blast because when I’m outside with the kids, I know I don’t look like that. All I think about is will this game of tag ever be done? Can’t you play by yourselves? It’s not that I don’t want to spend time with my kids. It’s that now that I’ve been an adult for most of my life, I have found that the responsibilities of life have sucked out most of my fun-loving side.

It’s a no-registration, no-obligation program that provides fun opportunities for children and their grown-ups to be outside together.  It’s non-structured playtime just being outside for everyone in your family.

Families benefit from being outside together.  We all sleep better when we spend time outside, and being outside encourages better health for everyone–physically, mentally, emotionally, and relationally.  It’s weird, but it’s true.  It’s like we were made to be outside.

All ages are welcome even the littlest ones.  

Come-Out-and-Play-Family-Nature-ClubCome Out and Play Family Nature Club meets one weekday a month and one weekend day a month to accommodate all family types. The leaders pick a different Minneapolis park to explore each month.    

If this interests you like it does me, you can get more information on their Facebook page or through their MeetUp page. You can also contact them at  

NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED, but they do ask you to RSVP so they can expect you.
