Forget Pokemon-Go! Here is another way you can get your kids to play outside. Dedicated dad and daughter duo from Denver, Colorado takes playing in the park to another level. Being an avid fan of the TV show American Ninja Warrior, Gavin MacCall is helping his daughter, Lylah McCall to achieve her dream to be a contestant in American Ninja Warrior one day.
Gavin first started small by setting up some obstacle courses around their living room. Soon after, Gavin went the extra length by translating his imagination to his backyard. A truly passionate father, Gavin started going to Craiglist to collect some free items to get the whole thing going.
As time goes by, Gavin has set a GoFundMe page to collect more money so that brave little Lylah can continue on with her extreme training. Watch how Lylah overcame all the challenges here:
So mom and dads, perhaps it’s time to put those tablets and iPhones away and show your kids the wondrous things that are happening outside. Here are a few things to do to spark their curiosity:
