Boy playing soccerUnstructured, active play time is in short supply for kids in school. And in many places, running around with other children in the neighborhood is a thing of the past. Luckily, homeschooling gives you the freedom to help your kids get exercise and socialization at the same time.

Today my series on homeschooling PE continues with a look at one of my family's favorite activities, Outdoor Games Day. Find out what it is, why it works on so many levels, and how you can start one in your area.

It may be cold out now, but soon your kids will be anxious to get outdoors with old friends or to meet new ones. Plan now and you and your kids will have something to look forward to when spring finally comes.
