Do you have children that love to be outside? My boys want to be outside all the time, in the summer they are out in the pool. Winter, on the other hand, I have to come up with things to keep them entertained so they are not digging holes throughout my yard.
I’m going to share some outdoor entertainment for all children of all ages, that will get your children wanting to go outside and out of mischief.
Flying a kite
Chalk art (hopscotch)
Tag, chase, or races
Bikes, scooters, or skates
Outdoor painting (paint with nature, pine needles)
Picking fruits (taking care of plants)
Search for birds with binoculars
Finding bugs with magnifying glasses
Go for a walk (even if it’s to the mailbox or trash)
Pick up trash around your neighborhood
Soccer, baseball, basketball, football, volleyball
Hide and seek (they like to also hide objects to find)
Homemade Bowling (recycled items)
Feed the birds
Sand box or table with few small toys
Water play (sprinklers, water balloons, water gun fights, mini pool with water toys)
I got an outdoor game set we use for family events but I pull it out from time to time and they have lots of fun. They are competitive like their mama:) These game will be perfect to add to your outdoor curriculum. Gross motor stills are so important for children.
I hope you enjoyed my outdoor entertainment and give them a try if you haven’t already. Please share and save for later. Let me know if I missed something. Enjoy! Love ya, Mary xoxo
