Okay, we need to know — how did you keep your active kids busy this weekend?
We played several games of softball, a game of baseball and a few hours of soccer. And that was just the organized activities! After all of that, we went exploring at our nearby waterfall — jumping from stone to stone, wading through the ankle deep (and VERY cold) water, and climbing the banks to get a better view. It was so much fun and it is one of my kids’ favorite warm weather activities!
We had some pretty awesome movement activities for kids shared on our Facebook page this week and we can’t wait to show them to you. If you give one a try, please come back and let us know how it went!
LEMON LIME ADVENTURES || Need a quick activity to promote gross motor skills throughout the day that is also super fun? Try walking like an animal! Dayna shared 15 Animal Walks with us including crab, snake, kangaroo. Activities like this are also great for sensory input, coordination, strength, motor planning and more!
SUNNY DAY FAMILY || Need a quick boredom buster that is sure to get a toddler moving inside on a rainy day? Play Hide and Seek With Where’s Spot. This is a sweet little activity full of movement that goes right along with the book by Eric Hill. Love this idea!
BAMBINI TRAVEL || This list of 100 Ideas for Play to have an awesome summer is, well, AWESOME!
