Playing outside


With all this amazing weather we’ve been having and are going to continue having I thought it would be good to do a post on Playing outside.
When you ask any kid what their favorite part of spring and summer is I can guarantee it will have something to do with being outside. Whether it’s play in your own backyard or going camping with your family, the great out doors is a prominent part of every kids summer.
Not sure what to do outside or looking for a new activity? Try one of these ones.
  • Make sidewalk chalk and then use it on the driveway and sidewalk
  • Create a racing game and have prizes for the winners. You could even do a backyard Olympics
  • Play Hopscotch as a grouphopscotch1
  • Put up a basketball net or use the ones at a school to play a few games
  • Road hockey is always a popular activity in my neighborhood
  • Make a scavenger hunt scavenger hunt
Check out these great books to get some more ideas.
