Fun with the kiddos
Today was just one of those days where mommy did not feel like heading to the park even though the kids really wanted to, so instead I asked what they would like to do staying close to home aka the front yard.
First thing they wanted to do was to take their little mini car for a stroll around the block. I knew that wasn’t the end of their playtime so we grabbed all of the goodies in the garage they showed interest in and we had some fun.
As they played I thought of small activities they would enjoy that could be used in different ways. Hula Hoop, Skippet, and chalk.
Other than just the normal hoop I had them hop through it making different angles for them to try when jumping.
As they were playing with the chalk it reminded me back when I was younger, How all of my cousins, sister and I will play with chalk. One fun game we would play would be hopscotch! I also tried to add a fun learning component to it by adding shapes with the numbers.
We stayed outside rotating through these activities for at least a good 30 to 40 minutes. They were definitely tired by the time they headed to bed.
