Who's seen Phineas and Ferb on the Disney Channel?
I'm going to go ahead and bet that anyone with kids has seen at least one episode. The thing I LOVE about Phineas and Ferb is that they spend their entire summer vacation (and Christmas break, in the winter special) working on something new each day. They aren't glued to computer screens or video games. They use their imagination and come up with some pretty fun ideas that eventually lead to an awesome adventure. (Not to mention, the Perry the Platypus subplots are HI-larious.)
So what does this have to do with the We Play Unplugged program we're involved in this summer?
We Play Unplugged is focused toward doing the same thing: getting the kids up off the couch, outside, and having adventures. In fact, last night I spent the better part of a few hours writing down some of the requirements for brag badges my kids can do this week while they hang out with me here at the floral. So many of the brag badges encourage kids to use their imagination, play games outside, or create something.
Much like Phineas and Ferb.
Now, I don't know about you guys, but we are HUGE Phineas and Ferb fans at our house, so if my kids can do something even remotely similar to what those two cartoon step-brothers do each week, they are on board.
So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to the We Play Unplugged website, check out the Brag Badge page for your area, and get started on doing something new, fun, and creative this summer!
