Fun out and around!
There are plenty of things to do outdoor – whether you want to stay close to home or go further afield.
Here are some fun things to do outdoors
There is nothing like a family walk to bring everyone out in the sunshine. Plan a treasure hunt game for your kids and go for a stroll. Lay a treasure hunt round the place with easy clues. You can make it simple by giving the children a list of about 10 things to spot. Your probable task will be to find a dry leave, a stone, a bright flower, a buzzing bee, for instance. Treasure hunt boosts senses in children and it is great getting back to the nature on a sunny day.
Make a life-size drawing:
If youâ€™ve got any unwanted or worn out quilt, spread it across in your home garden and let your little artistic turn it out into a master drawing. Give your children a jumbo paint brush and a bucket of water and get them to paint the sheet in the garden. Or you might want to make a huge drawing on it. Then get the children to color the drawing in its shape.
Jack and Jill:
Your child will definitely treasure the Jack and Jill poem after this game. You simply have to climb up a hill (a steep grass hill) and roll down the hill. You can choose any gentle slope for your little legs.
Take your cycles out and get set go for cycling. You can head to the park or open space with your children, their friends and their cycles. To add more fun, organize a cycle race with a few laps each depending on age. All kids get an ice-cream treat for participating!
Find your local outdoor spots and plan your scavenger hunt. You can be a little creative and make an easy to track map (with pictures) for your child to follow. Set the children off to lead the way. An older child or a member can read out the instructions for the little one. Let the child see the pictures on the map and work out which way to go. Local parks and picnic spots are great for this.
Catch a sunrise or sunset at the lake point in your city. Get up early and set your journey to a lake and spend a peaceful time watching the sunrise.
Fill balloons from the tap, tie them, head outdoors and prepare for battle. Set targets to aim at. Then throw your balls to hit the target.
Fill a bowl with soapy water, hand out straws to the participants. Set a competition and see who can blow the most bubbles.
