10 Sep - Outdoor Activities
Hi there. It's Sumari from EasyHealthyKids.com. The weather is finally getting better where I live, and it opens up opportunities for fun outdoor play now. So this week I am sharing my favorite outdoor activities from the past month or so.
The family: Fred is my headstrong pre-school boy, and Sarah is my sweet little toddler girl.
Outdoor activity: Pouring Station
I like low cost, low prep activities like this pouring station.
You just need a few pouring jugs, small containers and bottles to pour into. You don't have to buy anything (except for food coloring if you don't have it on hand) for this activity.
"There’s nothing better than a pouring station. It’s simple. It’s easy. It’s basically free and it’s can keep a toddler entertained for so long." - busytoddler.com
Outdoor activity: Nature impressions in playdough
This Nature impressions playdough activity can be done indoor or outdoors, and is suited for all ages.
All you need are some natural objects, and playdough, to play. Kids press the twigs, leaves, flowers and so into the playdough, and then see what imprint they can make.
Outdoor activity: Veggie soup pretend play for toddlers
This is a simple one: Take your kids’ pretend play food, and some water, and let them make soup (pretend soup that is).
You can also use real food (that can get wet) if you don't have pretend food.
Outdoor activity: Toddler car wash activity
My son loves to wash things, and he is crazy about his cars.
Here's how to combine cars, washing and even a special fizzy effect to make a super fun outdoor science experiment.
