The Longest Day of the Year – How Will You Spend It?

Don’t you just love the long, long evenings in June? It makes it harder to get little people into bed on time, but makes it so much more fun as they extend a game of capture the flag or ‘peep,peep’. Personally, I have given into my kids desire to play a little longer, and I am enjoying listening to the shouts of excitement as active play makes a comeback on my block.

So this blog is a congratulations to ParticipACTION and their Longest Day of Play! There are some great resources and stories already out there on the blogosphere. Like this one from our friends at Healthy Families BC.

What are your plans for the longest day of the year? Friday nights are a swim night for my family, so we will definitely be hitting the pool. But there are so many great ways to use those extra hours for activity. ParticipACTION has come up with 100 Ways to Play.

If you have some ideas of your own, please let us know via twitter @bchealthyliving
