There are many, many, outdoor play activities you can look up online but sometimes it's about those spontaneous pretend play moments that make playing outside a whole new world!
Give the kids some swords, guns, and imagination and they will play for about an hour, more if you are lucky.
I don't know what they were playing, but they were running around yelling and catching imaginary somethings. I do know they were having fun.
Is also a great spontaneous summer activity. I don't even remember the last time I climbed a tree it has been sooo long. But the girls asked if they could get in the tree so up they went.
Find a ball and a bat and you have some summer baseball. We also played some kick ball in the backyard and taught the kids to run bases.
Catch, soccer, and Frisbee were some other sport type activities we played this summer.
Set boys in front of dirt and they will play. They don't even need shovels! This summer the two boys wanted to make 'worm houses' with every pile of dirt they could get their hands on, and I mean every pile.
Tell me about your summer I love new ideas and to see what other mommies are doing.
Have a great summer!
