I've been thinking a lot about our backyard and how to make it more inviting for Gerrick and his friends. Jenny at Let the Children Play has been fueling my thoughts with her latest post full of interesting links. I'm thinking we can start with a gravel pit and move from there. I'd love to have a dozen or so pieces of tree trunk for him to move around as he pleases...
This video presented by From the Ground Up is also inspiring:
If you are fortunate enough to have a backyard, do your children like to play there? Do you have natural elements there that they enjoy using? Do you have any photos or related links that you'd like to share? Please link in a comment!

I've decided to host a new link collection beginning in January--Nature Connections.
At the end of each month we would each post/link our favorite photo(s) taken during that month of our children interacting with nature. The purpose would be to encourage all of us to get outdoors more.
What do you think? Want to participate?
If so, share this post with your friends & get excited!
Go outside and snap some pictures while you're out there.
The January 2011 edition of Nature Connections will be ready for your links on January 31.
Feel free to grab a button.
I can't wait to see all your children enjoying the great outdoors!
