Children love to play outside. Outdoor activities are a great way to develop your child's imagination, improve manual skills and get to know the world around better. Being outside children oxygenate, toughen, become physically fit. If you have no ideas how to play with your child outside, here are some suggestions:
It's the perfect game for older children. It develops imagination, teaches logical thinking, reading maps and paying attention to details.
How to play? The simplest version is to prepare a map, for easy starters. Then give it to your child and give him time to find a precious treasure (it can be a box of sweets, a cinema ticket for a fantastic fairy tale or a small toy). Of course, let's hide the treasure in a safe place earlier. With time, you can raise the level of difficulty. To get a clue, the child will have to do some task, e.g. make 5 jumps.
Even small children show a certain desire to compete. That's why you can organize a running competition. The nearest tree or bench will be the finish line. For older children, the route may be longer. Of course, let the child win from time to time - the toddler also wants to feel that he is the best at something.
You can set few obstacles in the yard. Remember, that all the obstacles need to be safe and do not cause injuries - these can be plastic posts, wicker baskets or other items that can be found at home.
You need to have empty plastic bottles and ball – the game is ready.
