Outdoor Activities for Kids of All Ages
It’s ice cream melting, swimsuit wearing, kid entertaining season! As school days fade into distant memories and the choruses of “I’m booored” begin, make sure your young ones aren’t lazing into excessive screen time indoors. Get unplugged and into the outdoors for endless entertainment! Even a tame backyard or cozy and compact patio will do the trick for refreshing summer crafts, stimulating games, and fun outdoor activities for kids.
With the fresh summer breeze and warm sun rays kissing their skin, we’ve collected some lively activities that your kids can enjoy. Inspire excitement this summer with this fun outdoor bucket list for kids of all ages!
Little Kids’ Activities
A cup of ice-cold lemonade may be worth a bit more than ten cents these days, but we’ll leave the price up to your kiddos. Let them draw a sign and hang it up to start their mini business.
Kids’ activities are much more exciting when they’re both fun and educational! Bug catching is a great way to show your little ones all the creatures that live among us. Assuming you’re not afraid of whatever they catch, punch some holes in a plastic container and let the kids explore the insect world. Once they catch something, snap a picture and write down their findings in a book as something to lock back on!
Big Kids’ Activities
Full of candy, the piñata is a great treat to brighten up any occasion. Choose between making your own pinata with paper mache or opt for the simpler option of purchasing one at your local party store. Make sure you have your cameras out, because watching them try and break it open is best part!
Get your Mission Impossible soundtrack ready and build your kids a challenging obstacle course to complete. Gather up your household gardening items such as ladders, hula hoops, slides, dining chairs, and more!
Something with seeds, a reflective object, and grass longer than your arms are great additions to a challenging scavenger hunt. Have your teens either bring back all their objects or take photos to share on their phones.
From educational bug catching to delicious treats, we’ve collected all the best outdoor activities to get your kids back into nature. Enjoy the warm breeze and sun rays this summer with these family-friendly kids’ activities!
