We are very lucky in that we have several great parks near our house to play at during the week, including a park within walking distance of our house. The kids play outside and ride scooters and bikes at our house every day that the weather allows, but it's nice to have somewhere different to play sometimes.
Recently, one of the local parks installed a Frisbee golf course. I'd never heard of Frisbee golf, but the concept seemed simple enough. The kids had all received new Frisbees at the beach during our last trip, so we headed out earlier this week to try out the new course. I was happy to have something new to do for PE.
We didn't play the course in order, because there were some serious Frisbee golfers out there playing, so we tried to stay out of their way. We also didn't play right, since none of my kids can throw a Frisbee 300 + feet, which seemed to be the average distance from the tee (do you call it that in Frisbee golf) to the basket. I did teach the kids how to read the par, and what that meant. Emily seemed to be delighted when she would get the Frisbee in the basket in less than par...the fact that she was throwing from 20 feet away instead of the usual 323 feet was lost on her! They had a great time and they have already asked to go back.
