Story time definitely doesn't have to be an indoor-only activity. We take books outside all of the time. When the weather is nice, it's so relaxing to take a few books outside and enjoy a few good stories while soaking up the sunshine and fresh air.
Outdoor story time doesn't require a lot of work. Just grab a book and walk outside. We often read books in the backyard. You can take them to the park or beside a pond. We've read books about dandelions while sitting in a clump of dandelions. We've read about trees while sitting under a tree and we've read about picnics after enjoying our own picnic.
But your books don't always have to follow a theme. We enjoy reading anything and everything outside. Take story time outside and maybe you'll start a new habit when your kids become readers themselves. Is there anything better than sitting outside enjoying a good book? Nope! It doesn't get better than that!
