Public Lands & Day of Play


Today is National Public Lands Day.  So if you’re not already playing in a park, hiking in the mountains or helping clean up our green spaces then think about participating.  Across the country kids, parents and neighbors are working to improve our parks, beaches and forests.  Even if you only have half an hour, or while you’re watching the kids play, pull a few weeds or pick up a bit of trash.  It all adds up and what a great lesson to teach your kids – to take part in taking care of the planet.  If you’re looking for a site to volunteer you can click on the link here.

It’s also the WorldWide Day of Play!   Head down to the Elipse on the National Mall and join Nickelodeon for a day of play.   You can try yoga or zumba,  throw a ball with the NFL, play tennis, dance and even hula hoop!  Tons of activities to encourage play in today’s culture.


About the cultured kid

I've traveled, lived, worked and studied all over the world. Europe, North Africa, Central & South America, the Middle East and Asia. The more different the culture, the better! I'm determined to introduce my two boys to our multi-cultural world. Living in Washington, D.C. there are international festivals, parades and cultures right in our own backyard. I'll share with you our adventures around town and those that take us on international journeys. I'll also share ideas for introducing your family to foreign food, culture and community at home.
