Getting babies and toddlers outside to play

This week Childhood 101 is celebrating “Get Outdoors and Play” and that is one thing my nieces and nephews love to do.  There are all kinds of fun things infants and toddlers can do outside…

My little niece Clara is having a ball swinging in her backyard…

My nephew Wyatt loves the outdoors too…
