So, the next time you hear the words Field Day, and you think that this is an event that can only occur at school once a year, remember what Field Day teaches our kids: that anything that moves your body can be called a sport. Make your kids into entrepreneurs…ask them to invent a new sport. Give them free rein to find objects inside and outside the house and then set up a playing field and let them go to it. Who knows, maybe next year’s field day will include your child’s new invention!
