Waiting for the recess bell

Worldwide Recess Day is just 10 days away!

Here are some inspiring ideas from readers on Twitter and Facebook:

Becky from Arizona will spend the whole day in recess that day. She’s taking the husband and kids to Disneyland!

Maryellen from New York plans to go old school playing hopscotch and jump rope.

She also liked the idea of calling all the school chums together for a rousing game of kickball.

I like the idea of walking to Dairy Queen for an ice cream cone.

Or heading to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum to spy lizards and hummingbirds.

A trek through the Boyce Thompson Arboretum is my idea of recess!

Or how about a hot air balloon ride?
