For the best of our communities are all staying at home, but cabin fever is starting to set in. This week I took a bike ride in the community and it lifted my mood. To be completely honest, I didn’t know how badly I needed to get outside. I found my mood was light for the rest of the evening. Let’s welcome Spring by being outside today!
Have a picnic in the back yard
Do yard work together
Go for a walk or bike ride in the neighborhood
Have a bonfire
Set up a hammock
Read for 20 minutes outside on a blanket
Play freeze tag and hide and go seek
Let your kid teach you an outside game
Use sidewalk chalk
Blow bubbles (kids of all ages love bubble!)
When it rains, put on a raincoat and rain boats and play in the rain
Use old Amazon boxes to build a fort. Take it down and see what else you can create!
Make soapy water in a bucket or a large Rubbermaid container. Then have your kids wash their toys.
Play “I Spy with my Little Eye”
See what objects you can find in the clouds
Stack empty boxes and knock them down with a small ball. You can stack them in a tower or do bowling style.
Write large numbers on paper plates and toss a ball (or sock with rice). See who can score the most points.
Stack Solo cups in a tower and use a water gun to knock them over
Give your kids supplies (ropes, water hose, toys, sport equipment) and have them create an obstacle course for the family
Create a giant tic-tac-toe board with sidewalk chalk and paper plates for X and O.
