As parents, we know how important playdates are. They give kids the opportunity to do something outside the norm, really get to dig into something fun and interesting. I think that it also allows all the mamas out there (and dads too!) the opportunity to regroup as well. When you are doing the same routine every day, it can get boring!
What if you had the opportunity to have an epic playdate with your kids, what would you choose to do? For me, I think a weekend of hiking and camping in the woods would be a great time. It involves a lot of the activities my kids enjoy, but in a new location, so it is exciting and fun!
Having the opportunity to get out into nature and just let go of the technology, play with the kids and watch them explore, would be amazing. If you add in a lot of trees to climb and a lot of dirt, perhaps a stream to play in, and I think that my kids would be in heaven. What is it about dirt that is so appealing to kids? Is it that we just don’t want them to get dirty? It would have to end with us roasting marshmallows around the fire and enjoying the company of each other, laughing and talking. That is my definition of epic!
Hyundai is holding their own Epic Playdate Weekend on April 27th from 9am-5pm in Santa Barbara, CA. There are going to be a ton of awesome bloggers participating; Dooce, Mighty Girl, Girls Gone Child, and How to be a Dad - just to name a few! They will be camping out on the beach and hosting a bunch of cool activities for the kids like the ultimate ice cream sundae bar, hula hoop workshops, paint fights and more! I know I would like to go to that! And luckily, you could win a trip to Hyundai's Epic Playdate Weekend for your family!
You have to have a pinterest account, but you can find out all the details here.
Most important part - This is an invite only event! You must choose Clever Girls Collective when the form asks "How did you hear about us?"
