Default Outdoor Programs

So, since it's practically spring here, I am already thinking. I would like to do a mostly-outdoor program once the weather turns for good. We will only come inside for potty and naps, otherwise we will be outside unless it's a bad weather day.

I know some people do naps outside as well, but I have mine sleeping almost 3 hours, and am not willing to give that up because of outside distractions.

How do you all handle outdoor handwashing? Does anyone have a sink, or do you just use the faucet? We have a faucet out there, but it would be cold water.

Our regs say:

A child's hands shall be washed with soap and warm running water before meals and snacks and after toileting or diapering. A child's hands and face shall be washed after meals.

If running water is not immediately available when outdoors or on field trips, soap and water based wet wipes may be used. WHen running water becausem available, hands shall be washed immediately with soap and running water.

Does anyone do outdoor programs, and if so, what are your "must haves"?
