Going through potty training with your child doesn't mean you have to stay home all day. Potty training can still be a rewarding experience by exploring different parts of your neighborhood while making the transition from diapers to regular underwear. Here are five fun outdoor locations for your potty training child:
1. Backyard: This may seem like an obvious option but it can be easy to forget to let your kid run around in the backyard if you have one. One of the pros of setting aside backyard time is that you know where your kid is and your kid also has easy access to a bathroom.
2. Neighborhood playground: Taking regular trips to the neighborhood playground provides many benefits for your potty training kid. Some of those benefits include exercise, socialization with other children in the neighborhood and a chance for you to get outside.
3. National park: If you live next to a national park, take the opportunity to explore nature with your child. National parks are a great way to escape the stresses of your everyday environment. A trip to a national park will also be an educational experience for your child helping him/her gain a greater appreciation for the outdoors.
4. Beach: Trips to the beach are a great way to get some vitamin D while experiencing some ocean therapy. Like trips to national parks, going to the beach can be an educational experience for you child while getting exercise.
