4 Outdoor Family Activities to do with Toddlers AND Babies

You might know that we at Dwell + Slumber are located in beautiful Arizona. One of the things we love most about being tucked all the way over here is all the adventures right at our fingertips! We love getting outside with the whole family and think it’s one of the best​ ways to create awesome family moments! Not only that, but we LOVE to see the adventures you take your house dresses on! That being said, we came up with a little list that we hope will inspire you to get outside with the whole family, no matter how little some of your littles are.

1 | Hike it up

The side of a mountain, we mean. Or maybe just a light trail depending on your chances of getting winded with a toddler strapped to your back. We feel you. Not only will your family appreciate the views from wherever you’re headed, you’ll probably have some pretty fun conversations along the way. Never a bad thing.

2 | Find some water

Be it a pool, beach, river, puddle in the driveway- kids love water. If your kids are anything like the ones we know, water in any form​ is a blast. You might even have some fun, yourself, seeing the look on your baby’s face when you dip her feet in! Who says parenting can’t be entertaining?

3 | Feed the animals

It’s one thing to read about animals in books or even see them on TV, but getting up close and personal really sticks in a child’s brain! And don’t feel like you have to go to a zoo. Sharing tummy-friendly frozen peas with the ducks at a local lake might be just as exciting to your little one (shh… we won’t tell them it’s free)!

4 | Chow down

Have a lazy Saturday coming up? Why not pack up those sandwiches, grab a blanket, and head to the closest park for a picnic in the shade? Baby can get some tummy time while the toddler blows off some steam. You’ll all leave full and ready for a nap back home. Parenting for the win!

Ok families, you’ve got your list- now get out there and make us proud! Capture a moment with your Dwell + Slumber house dress while on your adventure? Snap a pic and tag us on Instagram! We love when we get a shout out!
