Slather on the sunscreen and scoot the kids outside for a day of fun. Whether they love to play games like kickball or hopscotch or prefer nature activities like planting flowers or watching birds, we have plenty of ways to get your child off the sofa and in the great outdoors.
Get out the colored chalk and help your children draw a huge hopscotch path. Add extra fun by trading traditional hopscotch square shapes for cars, butterflies, fish, and other fun designs.
You don't necessarily have to host a community picnic to enjoy these fun games! Collect some burlap sacks, create a start and finish line, and have an old-fashioned sack race! Or, divide children into pairs and use a scarf or banana to bind their inside legs together for a fun three-legged race.
There's a special bond between kids and bikes that can never be broken. Riding a bike is a rite of passage, a passport to worlds beyond the front lawn. Bikes represent fun, freedom, and fresh air -- everything that's good about being a kid. Moreover, biking is a healthy pastime that kids will never outgrow.
For a homespun version of disc golf, hang a hoop from a branch or clothesline, then grab a Frisbee and try these spins on the game.
Set out four bases (cardboard squares work well) with home plate near the hoop. Players start at home and work around the diamond, shooting from each base. Three "strikes" (misses) and you're out; complete the circuit to earn a run and another turn (with three strikes).
