Kids love fun and especially during holidays, and when visiting friends. Without an activity to keep their mind engaged, they will keep nagging the caregiver every now and then.
To avoid all these and ensure they are fully engaged, various outdoor activities got their mind into thinking and as such, have a healthy lifestyle. Some of these fun activities are described here below.
- Outdoor Sketching;
Outdoor sketching is not only fun but helps kids to build up different skills and also get to know what they are gifted in. For instance, when making an observation and having some creativity out of it, this is enough to make a kid get super excited and nature the skill to adulthood.
This can be done in pairs as they compete with each other, for example, in drawing a landscape.
All that is required is a pencil, colors and a sketch pad to put down the observation and finally give a fruitful end product.
Sardines is a hide and seek game reversed; it’s only one person who hides whereas the rest look for him/her. Once one of the kids gets to find the hiding character, he also joins in the hiding, and the rest keep looking for them. This goes on until one character is left out looking for the rest.
The end of the game is that the last person to find the hiding place becomes the person to hide in the next round.
It’s a fun outdoor activity for preteens whose energies are on high gear.
- Crayon Rubbing;
Another fun game that works well when an older person guides children. First of all, there is needed to teach the kids how to do the art of crayon rubbing and then allow them to compete for at least 25 minutes.
For example, moving around the house and making crayon rubbings to make as many designs as possible.
Every kid loves cycling, and this is a fun outdoor activity when kids are competing along with the backyard.
Besides, one can still opt to take them out in a park where there is plenty of space and ensure that they explore as many methods and current styles of cycling. All that a parent need is to have an overview of the area and understand it fully.
This will be a guiding factor in the safety of the kids, even as they cycle and have fun together.
It’s also essential to ensure that the kids apply sunscreen to prevent their skin from hot sun rays. It will be fun the entire day
- Playground Sojourn;
Any time you think about outdoor activities, think about an open field where the kids are exposed to free space and have as much fun as possible. Playgrounds also have several games that kids will love and enjoy, and besides sharpen their skills.
Next time you think about an outdoor activity for kids, think about the playground sojourn. You can never regret.
All these are activities that will make a weekend super exciting, and kids will keep looking forward to another weekend or holiday to have an adventure of their own.
