"I was already running a playgroup, but the KaBOOM! webinar, Get Outside: an All-Weather Guide to Outdoor Playgroups, made me take the initiative to set up an 'Outdoor Playgroup' within our existing playgroup. Usually we try to meet outside anyway, but during winter in New England, that's not always the first impulse- many people just want to stay inside- we also have a lot of southern people who have relocated to this area and they find it hard to get out with the kids.
So, I figured starting 'Outdoor Playgroup' in the winter was a good idea. We've had really great turnouts to most of the events, and now that it's getting warmer I'm hoping that attendance will increase as well. One member who came to our outing this week said they hadn't been to a playground since the fall."
