Go Out And Play With KaBOOM!

Disclaimer: I received a Go Out and Play Essentials backpack and compensation for my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

“Mom I’m bored. There’s nothing to do.”

“Mom I don’t want to ride my bike. There’s nothing to do.”

“Mom can we go to the park?”

At the park…“Mom there’s nothing to do.”

And on and on it goes. They want to go play outside and then claim there’s nothing to do. They’re bored. They don’t have anything to play with. And that’s where the KaBOOM! Go Out and Play Essentials backpack comes in.

If you've ever heard "Mom I'm bored," then the Go Out and Play Essentials backpack by KaBOOM! is a must have! It's full of things for the kids to play with outside like jump ropes, playground ball, sidewalk chalk, and a flying disk. Also include the book Go Out and Play! which has all kinds of outdoor games the kids can try.
The Go Out and Play backpack is packed full of things to beat boredom. There are two jump ropes, a rubber playground ball, two boxes of sidewalk chalk, and a plastic flying disc. The kids can all play together or go do separate things…there are enough options for the neighborhood kids to play too!

There’s also a book titled Go Out and Play! that I love.

This book is perfect for those days when the kids want to play something new. It’s full of fun outdoor games like games we played as kids (blindman’s bluff, red light green light, and four square) and games that I’ve never even heard of. It includes a variety of games depending on what the kids want to do. You’ll find tag games, hide-and-seek games, ball games, team games, sidewalk games, and more. It also includes tips for how parents can encourage and facilitate getting the kids to go out and play…something they definitely don’t do enough of these days.

Now here’s what I love about the The Go Out and Play backpack.

1. The backpack is made of a high-quality, super durable material. The kids can drag it around, fight over who gets to carry it, toss it back and forth to each other and it’s still in perfect condition. Yes, I’m speaking from experience.

2. There is enough in the backpack to keep multiple kids busy. They can play together or each choose something to do separately. All of the activities are good for kids of all ages.

3. You can pack everything in the backpack and still have room for water bottles, sunblock, etc. And because everything you need to get the kids to go out and play is included in the backpack, you can keep it in the garage or keep it in your car for on-the-go fun. I can imagine us taking it with us on road trips, camping, or when we are at the river and the kids run out of things to do on their own.

I also appreciate that with every purchase from the Go Out and Play Collection (and there are lots of fun things included so make sure to check it out!), a minimum of 8% will be contributed to the national non-profit KaBOOM!. KaBOOM! works to bring balanced and active play into the daily lives of all children, particularly those growing up in poverty in America. So with my purchases, I’m doing something good for my kids and for other kids too.

So there you have it! The KaBOOM! Go Out and Play Essentials backpack is the perfect way to get your kids outside playing in the sunshine. Head over to Imagine Toys for all sorts of ways to keep the kids busy and having fun whether they are playing inside or outside!

Happy 7th Birthday, Ethan!

Two weeks ago, the girls turned 5. Five! How quickly time flies! And then this past weekend Ethan turned 7. Seven years old. How in the world did that happen so fast? Didn’t he just turn three, and then four, and when did he stop being five and turn six? And now, just like that, my miracle baby is 7 years old.

Since the kids have birthdays just 6 days apart, we just have one big ol’ birthday party for them. Ethan invited his cousins and friends, and he had a blast. His WWE-themed birthday was a hit!
