Get outside with your little one and enjoy the Spring weather!
Outdoor Ideas for Young Kids
-Visit area parks! My husband will regularly take our son on a park adventure where each time they go some place new! It’s free and fun!
-Have a picnic. Use cookie cutters to make Spring themed sandwiches like butterflies and bugs, then cut some fruit and pack some crackers for a great picnic.
-Get out the sidewalk chalk. You get to sit (instead of chase) and get creative with your toddler.
-Read a book on a blanket in the grass or under a tree.
-Go for a walk. We like to pretend we’re on an animal adventure and look for furry friends. Or keep it interesting with a game of I-spy, pointing out colors and shapes.
-Play games. It doesn’t take much to assume a toddler. Lay out a few hula hoops and make a game of throwing rocks into them. See who can score the most points.
-Jump in puddles. Put on the rain boots (or the old snow boots) and enjoying getting messy in the mud.
